The documentary Change the Subject explores the ways that politics can enter a library catalog, and shows what libraries can do about it. The film’s runtime is one hour, but we trust that it will be thought provoking, and so have allowed time afterward for discussion. We'll have coffee and desserts, but feel free to bring your lunch.

From the film’s producers:

Change the Subject tells the story of a group of students at Dartmouth College, who from their first days at Dartmouth, were committed to advancing and promoting the rights and dignity of undocumented peoples. In partnership with staff at Dartmouth College, these students—now alumni—produced a film to capture their singular effort at confronting an instance of anti-immigrant sentiment in their library catalog. Their advocacy took them all the way from Baker-Berry Library to the halls of Congress, showing how an instance of campus activism entered the national spotlight, and how a cataloging term became a flashpoint in the immigration debate on Capitol Hill.
