BCLA Perspectives

The Relationships and Reciprocity Issue: A Letter from the Editors

Welcome to a new year of BCLA Perspectives!

This is our first issue of 2022 where we explore themes of relationship-building and reconciliation within our field. In this issue, take a look at anti-racism work within an academic library setting, the Indigenization and decolonization of BC’s public libraries, and more.

Our editorial team has also shifted. We’d like to thank outgoing editor Anna Pedersen for her help keeping this publication going through the pandemic. We’ve also welcomed Kaschelle Thiessen and Christie Burnett to our team.

Christie Burnett is a library technician living and working in the Lower Mainland.

Kaschelle Thiessen is a communications professional and grad student.

Stay tuned for information about our next issue.
