Focus on Educating for Sustainability: Toolkit for Academic Libraries (2014) by Maria Anna Jankowska. This edited collection captures the current status and future direction of libraries’ commitment to advance the focus of educating for sustainability. It is designed as a toolkit offering a wide range of best practices, case studies, and activities ready for implementation within academic libraries.

Piracy: Leakages from Modernity (2014) takes a broad perspective on piracy and attempts to capture the multidimensional impacts of piracy on capitalist society today. The book is edited by James Arvanitakis at the University of Western Sydney and Martin Fredriksson at Linköping University, Sweden.

Feminist Pedagogy for Library Instruction (2013) by Maria T. Accardi provides both a theoretical framework and practical guidance. Accardi defines and describes recurring themes for teachers: envisioning the classroom as a collaborative, democratic, transformative site; consciousness raising about sexism and oppression; ethics of care in the classroom; and the value of personal testimony and lived experience as valid ways of knowing.

Information Literacy and Social Justice: Radical Professional Praxis (2013), edited by Lua Gregory and Shana Higgins extends the discussion of information literacy and its social justice aspects. Chapters address the democratizing values implicit in librarianship’s professional ethics, such as intellectual freedom, social responsibility, and democracy, in relation to the socio-political context of information literacy.
