NDLA EDI Discussion Series

Log in

Join NDLA’s EDI Committee in our inaugural EDI discussion series! Our first topic is “Building Diverse Collections for Diverse Communities”. We will be discussing how to provide robust readers’ advisory services that value equity, diversity and inclusion principles. How do you recognize and work around your own biases? What do you do to promote inclusivity in your reader’s advisory practices? What are your go to resources for finding inclusive materials? 

To prepare for the discussion we recommend watching Becky Spratford’s #OwnVoices for All Readers: Incorporating EDI Values into Readers’ Advisory Service. This hour long workshop provides the information you need to diversify your suggestions, identify resources, and include more staff input in order to confidently promote and place more #OwnVoices titles into patrons’ hands.

An alternative resource to explore is Becky Spratford’s blog RA for All where she offers title recommendations and further information on crafting inclusive and anti-racist library collections.

We will meet on June 5 at 3 PM Central. Register here.
