Deviating with diversity, innovating with inclusion: a call for radical activism in libraries [video]

ALIA New Librarians' Symposium 9 (NLS9), 5-7 July 2019 Adelaide: collaborate deviate innovate
 
Recording (MP4 audiovisual) of session on diversity and inclusion in libraries. Library and information science (LIS) professionals have an essential, catalytic role to play in ensuring that everyone is accepted, valued, cared for, respected and welcomed in libraries. Inclusive librarians create a culture of compassion and care, and ensure that their library facilities, services, programs, collections and technology are designed in a way where everyone feels a sense of belonging.

Yarra Libraries worked with not-for-profit organisations to build panels and address topical issues from the Stolen Generations to Manus Island and detainment.
