Diversity, Equity & Inclusion


Research libraries work to advance access to economic and social prosperity, encourage full participation in society, and counter the historical lack of access to material resources about underrepresented human groups in collections that we cultivate and steward.

We focus on recruiting into our organizations and developing individuals who identify as people of color, or are from historically underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.

We also ensure that our community continues to improve the representation of historically underrepresented, underserved, or marginalized groups in information resources.
