Previous Series Topics and Notes

The EDI Discussion Series began in the summer of 2023. This page archives the resources discussed as well as the notes taken by facilitators during each session.

June 2023

Our first topic was “Building Diverse Collections for Diverse Communities”. We discussed how to provide robust readers’ advisory services that value equity, diversity and inclusion principles.

To prepare for the discussion we recommended viewing the following resources:

  • 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.
  • Becky Spratford’s blog RA for All where she offers title recommendations and further information on crafting inclusive and anti-racist library collections.
