Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Resources for specific groups

This guide is organized by the University Libraries' Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Collective

The mission of the Libraries' Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Collective is to discover, create, and implement policies, resources, and programming that contribute to an environment of tolerance, inclusion, creativity, and curiosity. This collective will take a leadership role in ensuring that underrepresented voices are amplified in our collections, workforce, and services. This collective will connect Libraries employees with recommendations and resources to serve all members of the CMU community with empathy and respect. This guide is one of these resources.

This video is from the Choice Media Channel. "What does an inclusive and diverse collection look like? How can librarians balance core canonical works with a changing college curriculum and the need for new and divergent scholarly voices? Using the Resources for College Libraries (RCL) database as a tool, speakers will present approaches and practical information on how to select, evaluate, and maintain diverse library collections." The video is 1 hour long.
