What role does the library play in adopting and furthering DEI initiatives?

Summary:

Academic institutions around the world are adopting principles of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Within those institutions, libraries are playing leading roles in exploring the issue on a practical level and taking action. In this webinar, we’ll be taking a look at the role of the library in the DEI journey, including:

  • Creating, promoting and measuring inclusivity in collections
  • Updating catalogues and course reading lists
  • Practical considerations regarding the identity and regional origin of both authors and publishers

Join us to hear from three panelists about how the library played a key role in DEI initiatives at their academic institutions.
