Discussions of critical librarianship have been taking place for over a decade, and recent developments such as #critlib show the continued influence of critical theory on librarianship. At the same time, however, many librarians have found it difficult to incorporate these ideas into their work. To that end, this panel explores why and how critical information literacy (CIL) intersects with the First-Year Experience (FYE). Presenters from four different campuses will address past successes and missteps in this area, as well as outline their future plans for elevating how librarians approach FYE. The discussion will also take the form of a #critlib chat, so audience participation is welcomed and strongly encouraged from conference participants, as well as those colleagues who might not have been able to make the trip to Salt Lake City.
