Many of us were hired to work toward systems where knowledge is open, equitable, transparent, and diverse. At the same time, our hiring institutions can be ambivalent about change, and we ourselves sometimes fall short of the ideals we espouse. One antidote for burnout and disillusionment is to build a durable, continuing community that can survive and do good work despite setbacks and failures. As JLSC editors, the three of us—Anne, Jennifer, and Rebekah—plan to continue facilitating the conversations that make this community
a sustainable reality.

The editorials below all engage with the idea of community. We hope that their thoughts
and critiques will encourage all of us to think about our own communities and work to
improve them.
