?Registration is open for the upcoming OCLC webinar "Practical Steps Towards Diversifying Collections: Begin or Advance Your Library's Efforts to Support EDI Goals with Concrete Steps, Tools, and Activities". It will take place on Wednesday, November 10, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CDT, via WebEx.

Many institutions want to do more to support diverse library and archival collections that better serve and reflect traditionally underrepresented communities. These plans can center around providing materials that serve more inclusive needs or hosting content authored by more diverse creators. In either case, getting started requires more than just good intentions.

Join moderator Elizabeth McClenney, Director of the Library for Roanoke College and OCLC Americas Regional Council delegate, for a discussion about how to begin or advance your library's efforts to support EDI goals with concrete steps, tools, and activities. Elizabeth will be joined by:

  *   Summer Durrant, Collections Librarian, University of Mary Washington
  *   Curtis McKendrick, Dean of Libraries, Binghamton University
  *   Helen McManus, Head of Collections Strategy, George Mason University
  *   Chela Scott Weber, Senior Program Officer, OCLC Research Library Partnership
