Margaret Bausman

Academic Librarian & Social Worker

 

Black Lives Matter / #StopAsianHate


I condemn racial violence and systemic racism, the impact of which permeates the lives of people of color across America.   I stand in solidarity with protest against police brutality and all mechanisms of institutional oppression.  In keeping with my professions long-standing traditions as agents for social justice, I affirm my commitment to egalitarianism, anti-oppressive pedagogies, and the pursuit of knowledge for all.


I am proud to be both a librarian and a social worker. It is therefore a privilege to serve as the Head of the Social Work and Urban Public Health Library at Hunter College – a true intersection of these paths and a pivotal juncture on my journey.  As an academic librarian, I work collaboratively with the faculty of the Silberman School of Social Work to provide information literacy instruction specific to social work education, practice, and research. 

My own research endeavors reflect my in vivo library practice as well as my interest in the early history of the helping professions especially as it relates to the social construct of the 'new woman' and the experience of immigrant women.

I invite you to review my scholarship and I hope you will feel free to reach out to me.
