Description

In Fall 2020, President Callahan announced several Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) projects that the university would commence, including a DEI Audit of the Library’s collections. We formed a planning group, did initial research on equivalent DEI audits at other institutions, and decided to involve students in the process by hiring 5-6 as Interns in Spring 2021. The students will meet weekly with the planning group to discuss the project, audit specific portions of the collection (based on disciplinary interest), and provide recommendations for collection diversification. This presentation will cover the initial results of hiring students, finalizing methodology for the audits in concert with the students, and student feedback on the project and their learning outcomes for the semester-long project.
