Activating Core Values in the Library: Strategies for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Presented by Meg Boisseau Allison, MEd, Erika Long, MSIS, and Julie Stivers, MLIS

Wednesday, May 25 @ 5pm Eastern

It can be easy to pay lip service to librarniship’s core values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and intellectual freedom. But what do those values look like in action? How can we intentionally build our collection, instruction, and programming to ensure that we are enacting these values on a daily basis with our school community—especially when librarian values are under attack?

In this webinar, librarians Meg Boisseau Allison, Erika Long, and Julie Stivers discuss what putting their core values into action looks like in their libraries, as well as usable strategies for embedding diversity, equity, and inclusion into your library practice.

Meg, Erika, and Julie are all contributors to Core Values in School Librarianship, edited by Judi Moreillon. And, for a limited time, you can get a free copy of their book with the purchase of a new subscription to School Library Connection, where you’ll also find discussion questions and activities to help you apply the lessons from Core Values directly to your practice.

Earn one hour of professional development credit for live or on-demand webinar participants.

Door Prize!
