The ACRL Diversity Standards provide a framework to support libraries in engaging the complexities of providing services to diverse populations, and recruiting and maintaining a diverse library workforce. The standards may also serve as a starting point from which libraries can develop local approaches and goals in the context of their organizations’ mission and situation. The Diversity Standards Toolkit provides additonal information and ideas for implementing the standards.

Ethnic Studies in Academic and Research Libraries: A Three-Part Webcast Series
Join ACRL this April for an interactive three-part webcast series with authors and editors of ACRL’s Ethnic Studies in Academic and Research Libraries providing a platform for enhanced discussion around Ethnic Studies and librarianship. Participants will appraise library support for Ethnic Studies programs/departments, either personally or collectively based on presented models, and weigh the importance of enhanced support of these programs/departments to their library and patrons. We’ll discuss the differences between Ethnic Studies support and DEI work and will highlight why this is important. Webcast series registrants will receive a complimentary ebook copy of Ethnic Studies in Academic and Research Libraries.
