Collection Assessment Through DEI Lenses: Venturing into (nearly) uncharted waters
The UNT Libraries has embarked on a journey to address systemic and systematic vestiges of oppression of socially and politically minoritized populations. For this purpose, the Collection Assessment Department is planning on evaluating the UNT Libraries’ collections, identifying sources of diverse materials, and connecting with our communities. This coming year, we will conduct focus groups and pilot a method on one aspect of our collections. For this panel discussion, self-selected members of an advisory board for this project will discuss their individual motivations for and concerns about the project. This will be an interactive session, with the audience participating by asking questions, as well as answering questions from the panelists.
