DEI Resources / Collectives / Initiatives

There is strong and growing interest among librarians and archivists to diversify the historical record and make library spaces, collecting initiatives, cataloging, archival description, digitizing, resources, programming, and staffing more equitable and inclusive.  Organizations such as the American Library Association, the Society of American Archivists, NY METRO Library Council, and many others are addressing issues of DEI directly with training, programs, grant funding, and other resources. 

Following is a small sampling of some library-related DEI resources and initiatives. There are links to articles, blog posts, reports, organizations, toolkits, and more.
