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


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.
