Tributes to women we admire
On August 16, the world lost an amazing talent and leader in music and civil rights. Yet Aretha Franklin’s legacy will live on, including these library tributes:
American Libraries: Bibliography of titles in which which Franklin appears as a key figure
Worthington LIbraries: The life of Aretha Franklin
Library of Congress: Memorial to Aretha Franklin, whose 1967 recording of the song “Respect” was among the first songs inducted into the Library’s National Recording Registry
Speaking of Library of Congress, Amanda Ros, LAC Group employee and cataloger for the Library’s CIP E-book program, had what she described as a “major fangirl moment” when she met Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden earlier this summer.
