Name of creator

Progressive LIbrarians Guild - Greater Toronto Area Chapter (PLG GTA) (2011-)

Administrative history

We are Toronto-area library workers who are concerned with social justice and equality issues, charged with the stewardship of knowledge, championing open access to information, and preserving common space. We are interested in issues of freedom of expression, attacks on Canadian heritage, freedom of information, privacy, censorship, copyright, equitable access to information, the fostering of critical information literacy, and the broad social implications of the commodification of information and increasing corporate influence on libraries. As library workers, we recognize that the increasing lack of job security, de-professionalization, and casualization of our profession threatens the “free public sphere which makes an independent democratic civil society possible.”

We are a new voice in the Canadian library community seeking to influence progressive dialogue and political action in our communities and associations.
