Students today are seeking increased access to diverse voices and perspectives. And academic librarians are taking up the challenge to promote EDI in their institution’s digital resources and content. By doing so, they can drive both enrollment and retention.
Gale and Library Journal have released a comprehensive report about EDI as it relates to digital resources and research collections on campus. The survey of 220 college and university libraries also covers EDI auditing of existing digital collections, acquisition goals, top EDI goals, EDI committees, flagged resources, and EDI spending and budgeting.
