‘Library user profiles’
User profiles have influence on …
• How the Library collection is organised
• How the Library’s activities are managed.
There are four user segments to be catered for. These can be grouped according to the type of question being asked, as follows:
• Questions about a particular form of slavery, which often lead to further questions about what forces enable slave systems to persist.
• Questions about organisations: Who is doing what work, where?
• Questions about strategy, in other words how relationships work, to contribute to co-ordinating or harnessing anti-slavery activity.
• Questions about the ethics that can encourage slavery; and the ethics, values or principles that are on offer to guide anti-slavery thinking or initiatives.
We encourage other libraries to use this paper to assist in development of their slavery collections.
