This book outlines issues surrounding diversity among students, faculty, and staff and how one urban university library is working to embrace and celebrate the diversity found in its building, on campus, and in the local community. This book illustrates how universities are uniquely situated to engage students in discussions about diversity and how academic libraries in particular can facilitate and ease these discussions. A Diversity Council and the projects and programs it has developed have been instrumental in this work and may serve as an inspiration and launch pad for other libraries. Diversity Programming and Outreach for Academic Libraries details anecdotal experiences, and provides practical suggestions for developing diversity programs and forming collaborations with other campus units, regardless of size, staff, or focus of the academic library. Written by three academic librarians currently active in university level diversity initiatives Provides real-world examples of diversity programming and events for academic libraries Indicates how to find commonalities in the range of diversity issues at universities internationally

Many music librarians are tasked with reaching out to their primary user groups, but don’t know how to start this process, or need new ideas to spur them forward. Outreach for Music Librarians is a manual designed to provide immediate, practical help in the planning, implementation, and assessment of outreach projects. This manual is divided into three sections: (1) foundational principles to be kept in mind no matter the project; (2) an introduction to six different outreach projects with all the information needed to implement; and (3) case studies of outreach projects at four vastly different libraries. While this manual is aimed at newer practitioners, Outreach for Music Librarians provides such a wide breadth of information that even experienced music librarians should find new inspiration and should include it in their own collections.

“Gender issues have expanded in recent years and become increasingly nuanced. Therefore, this collection of essays on gender studies resources, services and research from the librarianship perspective are especially welcome. While the focus remains feminist, masculinity and other gender identities are explored through meaningful processes. Chapters include both “traditional” aspects of gender studies, such as cataloging patriarchy and ‘herstory’ content analysis as well as innovative ways to voice under-represented gendered points of view through use of space, curation, and edit-a-thons. The reader will find in-depth field-proven strategies and useful resources for pro-actively and collaboratively addressing gender issues and promoting inclusivity.”—Dr. Lesley S. J. Farmer, California State University Long Beach and ALISE Gender Issues SIG Chair “As a university professor who taught gender studies turned librarian, I fully appreciate the depth and scope of this volume and believe it can provide something useful for all.”—Su Epstein, Director, Saxton B. Little Free Library, Columbia, Connecticut “In this remarkable collection of gender-focused chapters, the writers explore libraries as a vehicle to promote inclusion and acceptance.”—Deloris J. Foxworth, School of Information Science, University of Kentucky “Fulfills the wide expanse of gender-sensitive topics providing new insights and accessibility for the classroom.”—Christine Redman-Waldeyer, Founder and Editor of Adanna, a journal for women, about women “Gender studies in libraries is rarely examined to the extensive level of this anthology...it is evident that libraries are a strong catalyst for social justice and promoting inclusive spaces.”—Jorge E. Perez, Digital Learning & Information Technology Librarian, Medical Library, Florida International University, Miami, Florida “This book has something for everyone interested in gender studies: academic and public librarians, educators and activists, writers and readers--just pick your focus and listen to experts in each area speak from experience.”—Robert Means, English Language & Literature Librarian, Brigham Young University. With the legalization of same-sex marriage and the explosion of LGBTQ news coverage in recent years, gender studies is a subject of intense interest in popular media and a part of the curriculum at many colleges. Libraries realize the importance of supporting the field yet many have difficulty finding resources and programming ideas. This book provides case studies and a range of innovative solutions for better meeting patron needs. Twenty-seven chapters are arranged into sections covering Research and Library Instruction, History and Herstory, Programming, Collections and Beyond, and Resources.

Humanizing LIS Education and Practice: Diversity by Design demonstrates that diversity concerns are relevant to all and need to be approached in a systematic way. Developing the Diversity by Design concept articulated by Dali and Caidi in 2017, the book promotes the notion of the diversity mindset. Grouped into three parts, the chapters within this volume have been written by an international team of seasoned academics and practitioners who make diversity integral to their professional and scholarly activities. Building on the Diversity by Design approach, the book presents case studies with practice models for two primary audiences: LIS educators and LIS practitioners. Chapters cover a range of issues, including, but not limited to, academic promotion and tenure; the decolonization of LIS education; engaging Indigenous and multicultural communities; librarians’ professional development in diversity and social justice; and the decolonization of library access practices and policies. As a collection, the book illustrates a systems-thinking approach to fostering diversity and inclusion in LIS, integrating it by design into the LIS curriculum and professional practice. Calling on individuals, organizations, policymakers, and LIS educators to make diversity integral to their daily activities and curriculum, Humanizing LIS Education and Practice: Diversity by Design will be of interest to anyone engaged in research and professional practice in Library and Information Science.

Ethnic Studies in Academic and Research Libraries serves as a snapshot of critical work that library workers are doing to support ethnic studies, including areas focusing on ethnic and racial experiences across the disciplines. Other curriculums or programs may emphasize race, migration, and diasporic studies, and these intersecting areas are highlighted to ensure work supporting ethnic studies is not solely defined by a discipline, but by commitment to programs that uplift underserved and underrepresented ethnic communities and communities of color.
