ALA Unit/Subunit: LITA
Meeting Type: Program
Cost: Included with full conference registration.
With many libraries (academic, school, and public) focusing on diversity and inclusion, it is helpful to know what tools and resources other librarians are using to guide the conversation of diversity to the front. Wikipedia is considered to be one of the largest encyclopedias on the internet. However, fair representation of notable but underrepresented people and topics remains a major concern. The LITA Diversity & Inclusion committee invites you to participate in helping us curate the information that is available on Wikipedia. You will also be helping us create a toolkit that contains resources valuable to any institution.
