CERL Online event on Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity

We warmly invite you to join this online event which will take place on 27 January 2022 at 16u CET (3pm GMT and 10am EDT). Please register at Secretariat@cerl.org and we will send you a zoom link.

Libraries are in and of the communities in which they exist. Conversations that take place in society are reflected and even taken forward by work done in libraries. These last years, the topics of Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity are among those addressed by librarians.

All areas of a library organisation are impacted, from our hiring and staffing practices, our assumptions about the audiences for our collections, what we think we know about the origins of our collections and perhaps the gaping holes in those collections, to the language we use to describe and present items we curate.

During this online event, we hear about the impact of these discussions on the Iconclass overhaul. Representatives from the British Library, the Royal Library in Sweden, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, and the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington describe how they related to these topics, how it has changed way they catalogue and present their collections, and what is the continued impact on their organisations. After the presentations, you are invited to discuss these issues in more detail with the panellists.

CERL has created a webpage around the topic of Cultural Property. At the bottom of this page is a start of a reading list around these topics. If you have further recommended reading, Marian Lefferts (marian.lefferts@cerl.org) would be happy to hear from you.
