Art librarianship education traditionally exposes students to specialized knowledge of resources, users, and issues unique to the profession, providing a strong foundation for career success. Yet education comprises not only what subjects are covered, but how the subject is taught, and why. This article describes an online art librarianship course designed with feminist and critical pedagogy principles guiding content, structure, and communication, taught through Indiana University in 2018. The author discusses and evaluates course design and pedagogy and provides a perspective on how feminist and critical pedagogy can frame art librarianship to promote the profession and strengthen its future.
