In order to create dialogue with patrons about diversity and inclusion, the Penn State University Library Learning Services (LLS) department collaborated with university and community organizations to hold the Human Library project. LLS sought to increase participants' awareness of their own biases and privileges and facilitate communication and empathy with others. This presentation will assess the department's key partnerships in facilitating the Human Library and evaluate outcomes relative to diversity, inclusion, and community engagement.
