"Emergency Librarian" is a Canadian feminist periodical started by Sherrill Cheda, Phyllis Yaffe, and Barbara Clubb in the 1970s. None of them had had any previous experience in publishing, but wanted to provide a serious outlet for writing by and about women. They recognized the need to bring to light the perseverance of male-centric power being held over women in the workforce, in this case, libraries. The publication started as a simple typed up, stapled together journal that was sent out six times a year and is now under the periodical "Teacher-Librarian."
