Collection diversity is important to representation and accessibility to library patrons. In this webinar, we are going to discuss what collection diversity is, collection diversity audits, and the importance of intellectual freedom.
An inclusive collection that is representative of your community is an important part of library accessibility. While circulation statistics, high holds and popular reading lists are often indicators for the health and success of a collection and purchasing, this may also mean that your collection is not representative of your community. This can be remedied by performing a collection diversity audit. During this webinar, we are going to discuss what a collection diversity audit is, why it is important, and how to go about planning a collection diversity audit.
