Course Overview

Guest speaker sessions via Zoom: Wednesday, September 28, and Tuesdays October 4 and 11, from 2:00-4:30 pm ET (recordings available)

Workshop: Asynchronous, facilitator-led workshop over 3 weeks

Through this course, you’ll learn about the concrete actions library leaders are taking to help cultivate an antiracist, inclusive library culture—from examining the impacts of implicit bias, to evaluating spaces, programs, and services and examining policies and practices through an antiracist lens—to ensure that there is a shared value of antiracism at the library.

Practical coursework, along with targeted support, will take you from theory to application, providing tools and resources that will help you to transform your library culture and services by examining them through an equity lens.

Over 3+ weeks, you’ll complete engaging, interactive assignments that will help you to build both your individual and collective capacity in the areas of equity, diversity, and inclusion. Your work in the interactive online classroom is supported by personal coaching from an expert in the field. In addition, you’ll have access to our foundational bonus content—rich supporting materials you can explore at your own pace, including a series of webinars from Library Journal and School Library Journal contributors, readings, activities, and videos.

This is a companion course to How to Build Diverse Collections, which we recommend taking before or after How to Build an Antiracist Library Culture. In this course, we will examine the many facets of creating an antiracist culture at the library, including programming, hiring, and more, and in How to Build Diverse Collections, we will take a specific and granular look at how to audit your collections, ordering, and readers advisory service.
