Practical steps towards diversifying collections
Begin or advance your library's efforts to support EDI goals with concrete steps, tools, and activities.
Many institutions want to do more to support diverse library and archival collections that better serve and reflect traditionally underrepresented communities. These plans can center around providing materials that serve more inclusive needs or hosting content authored by more diverse creators. In either case, getting started requires more than just good intentions.
Moderator Elizabeth McClenney, Director of the Library for Roanoke College and OCLC Americas Regional Council Member, will moderate a discussion about how to begin or advance your library's efforts to support Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) goals with concrete steps, tools, and activities.
Elizabeth will be joined by:
- Summer Durrant, Collection Services Librarian, University of Mary Washington
- Curtis Kendrick, Dean of Libraries, Binghamton University
- Helen McManus, Head of Collections Strategy at George Mason University
- Chela Scott Weber, Senior Program Officer, OCLC Research Library Partnership
