Collections Decoded: Reflections and Strategies for Anti-racist Collection Development (Conference Proceedings)(2017)
Operating from three distinct but interlocking perspectives, this session will cover the lived experiences of three librarians (Black woman archivist, a White woman anti-racist public librarian, and a Black woman academic librarian) navigating collection development and collection development policies in a profession that is 85.2% White. This program will also provide strategies for accomplices and white librarians to support their colleagues and implement anti-racist collection development strategies at their institutions.
