Notes from the Co-Editor


I am very pleased to welcome you to the second issue of the 28th volume of Urban Library Journal, which is a collection of proceedings from the LACUNY Institute held on Thursday, May 12, and Friday, May 13, 2022. The theme of the Institute was “Built to Exclude: Confronting Issues of Equity and Otherness in Libraries.” The Institute highlighted how library workers, patrons, and scholars are grappling with questions about what it means to have access, to belong, and to feel welcome and included.
