Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: Creating a New Future for Library Collections

Friday, January 20, 2017  |  8:30 a.m.–4 p.m.  |  event code ALC1

Equity, diversity and inclusion are ideals librarians espouse. Whether in acquisitions, access, management or preservation, library collections are evolving to support these ideals. Furthering discussions on metadata, open access, and preserving diverse voices in collections are critical as libraries face challenges in a changing society. This symposium explores work underway and what the future brings.  Add to Scheduler MORE
