Description:

Building on the themes present in the ACRL publication, Open and Equitable Scholarly Communications: Creating a More Inclusive Future, this session will focus on the ways that library professionals can incorporate the concepts of equity, openness, and inclusion into the work they are already doing, or that they aspire to do.

Learning Outcomes

  • Define equity, open, and inclusion
  • Identify where their work aligns with people, content, and/or systems
  • Create an action plan for how to intentionally incorporate equity, openness, and inclusion into their work
