Diversity initiatives are critically important “behind the scenes” in technical services and not just as part of a library’s outward-facing public service departments. Speakers from a public library, a tribal college library, and university libraries will share examples of projects that promote inclusion and social justice among technical services staff and services. Join us for presentations and Q&A about the ways archives, cataloging, preservation, and collections staff can promote these important values in their daily work.
At the end of this program, participants will have concrete examples of initiatives and strategies that have worked to promote diversity, inclusion, and social justice among technical services staff and services.
This program is intended for technical services staff and managers, library administrators, and library diversity or human resources officers.
