Thanks, Jeff for the update on the challenges other libraries are facing. I agree Barack Obama has an optimist that is always uplifting.
Jeff, thanks for the post! Your insights into how to diversify your collection was also a part of the session on “Cultures of Collecting: Sustaining Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Collection Development” : [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=641k-uyndHA ] If you haven’t seen it, you might find it helpful.
Interesting – and good! – to hear that some libraries aren’t waiting for LOC to update subject headings to be more inclusive and equitable. I’m envious of all of you who heard President Obama. I’m glad his hope remains a positive sign.
