LibGuides Open Review Discussion Sessions (LORDS) Project: An invitation to discuss the LibGuides Open Review Discussion Sessions (LORDS) Project: a this project works towards cultivating a community across California State University Libraries that provides space for critique, conversation, and criticality. In using critical race theory to acknowledge structures of publishing, libraries, and reference, this review system works towards holding criticality to fight against the farce of neutrality within knowledge organizations. Based around LibGuides but pertinent to everyone in our library organization, we hope to bring anti-racist practices to our work by understanding and acknowledging the structures of publishing, libraries, and reference. At first glance, it may seem that the project is only directed towards those who create or use LibGuides or participate in retention, promotion, or tenure processes, but both the 'peer' and 'review' in this peer review system includes anyone who works in a library, and those who are involved in the accessibility and sustainability of important digital repositories are vital peers in this process. As a CSU-wide system, we are establishing not only a multi-campus review system, but also a people-to-people network in working towards self-reflective anti-racist practices, web usability best practices, critical information literacy, and more. more than an introduction to the project, this session would be a forum to procure more involvement across the CSUs.

The CSU Japanese American Digitization Project: A CSU Collaboration
The CSU Japanese American Digitization project (CSUJAD) originated in 2014 when a group of CSU Archivists came together to digitize their holdings relating to Japanese American incarceration during World War II and Japanese Americans in general during the 20th century (http://www.csujad.com ). With seven national, state and foundation grants, CSUJAD has received $1.5 million in grants from the NEH, NHPRC, NPS and CA State Library. Currently, the project contains 46,000 items in its database. Homebase for the project is CSU Dominguez Hills. The CSUJAD project holds materials from 18 CSU Archives and 11 other California Archives. This panel will focus on strategies for building a collaborative digital project, increasing access through informed metadata, updated community sensitive terminology, and how digitized objects can be used to inform exhibitions and teaching. Three panelists will speak for about 10 minutes each with slides. Greg Williams, Director of the Gerth Archives, CSUDH and CSUJAD principal investigator, will discuss the origins of the project, working with project partners, the growth of the project, dealing with donors ethically and with sensitivity, and the attempt to highlight CSU archival collections. Yoko Okunishi, Digital Archivist for the CSUJAD at CSUDH project will consider working with project partners, the use of terminology, cataloging issues, transferring records to our digital preservation partner, and guiding partners to generate functional metadata. Steve Kutay, Digital Services Librarian, CSUN will bring to light his work as a partner on the CSUJAD project and how the goals of the grants informed the of two integrated exhibits.

Implementing a Harvard-style Green OA Policy:
A number of CSU campuses have tried to pass Harvard-style Green Open Access policies over the last decade. In April, 2020, Cal State East Bay became the first CSU to pass such a policy in the Academic Senate, but the policy was sent back by the President for revisions. The revised policy is now close to being adopted. However, regardless of the outcome, there have been many lessons learned in the 4+ years East Bay has been working on this policy. In this presentation, we'll talk about the work done at East Bay to move a Harvard-style Green Open Access policy forward and what implications East Bay's policy has for other CSU campuses wishing to adopt a similar policy, as well as the CSU-system as a whole.
