Description

Hip hop is a creative and inspiring tool that you can use to engage library users in a litany of ways. With the appropriate classroom technology (in this case, two turntables and a mixer) as well as knowledge acquired over decades in the culture, we will explore how traditional hip hop production methods can alter our understanding of library technology as well as remix our notion of how libraries can support creativity. Can understanding hip hop literacies - particularly how the culture organizes information and classifies concepts - help inspire innovation? Let’s figure it out together.

Learning Outcomes

  • Participants will understand hip hop’s relationship to libraries and technology.
  • Participants will be able to articulate how their institution can support hip hop-based modes of creativity.
  • Participants will think deeply about hip hop and the culture’s intersection with information and education.
