We are delighted to announce the release of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Analysis to collectionHQ!
This exciting addition to the evidence-based toolset will empower libraries to:
- Discover DEI content in collections at a system wide and granular branch level.
- Monitor the supply of DEI material to address gaps.
- Analyze Fiction and Non-Fiction collections against industry accepted DEI Topics.
- Evaluate the representation of diverse populations in both print and digital collections.
“Healthy communities need access to inclusive library collections where people can find material that lets them see a reflection of themselves, offer a window to the world around them, and celebrate the differences that drive cultural, economic and social innovation,” said Amandeep Kochar, executive vice president and general manager of Baker & Taylor. “Yet creating and managing a collection that encompasses the wealth of human experiences can be complex and time consuming, which was our inspiration behind creating DEI Analysis.”
