Both STEM & Academia are fields which have historically privileged knowledge based in masculine European traditions, which is a very narrow paradigm, and libraries are as likely to gatekeep knowledge as to preserve and share it. I see my job as a STEM Librarian as one in which I am obligated to expand access to existing knowledge, helping it reach communities who previously were not allowed to participate in the conversations of academia. Further, I hope to promote the knowledge held and shared by those who have been historically ignored, so that its value can be better recognized. I am always happy for conversation and suggestions on how better to engage in these tasks!
