Narratives of Library Power: The Stories Library Shelves Tell

Every time we put a book on a shelf, we make a choice about how that book can be found by people browsing for materials. We put materials about sexuality next to books about marriage, and separate books about poverty from books about the ruling class. What kinds of ideological stories do our shelves tell, and what can librarians do to change dominant narratives?
