With academic freedom and higher education values under threat worldwide, our university library has partnered formally with NGO Scholars at Risk to provide a hands-on program that is integrated into our library services. The collaboration works with library staff, students, faculty, administrators, and other campuses worldwide to develop meaningful initiatives and engagement on behalf of human rights and social justice. The panel will discuss the origin of our collaboration, how it works, and how other university libraries might be able to form similar partnerships.
