Checklist: 8 Steps to Creating a Diverse Book Collection
Rating
0.0 stars

It’s not easy to create an inclusive book collection. That’s because creating a diverse book collection is about more than just making sure X, Y, and Z are represented. It’s not a matter of ticking off check boxes or making sure quotas are filled. For those committed to doing it right, building a diverse book collection requires contemplation, research, and awareness. But the rewards are great: a truly diverse collection of books can turn children into lifelong readers and promote empathy, understanding, and self-confidence. To make things a little easier, we’ve created a checklist to help.

A Content Analysis of District School Library Selection Policies in the United States

Rating
0.0 stars

Selection policies are practical tools used by school librarians to guide them in their collection
development plans. This investigation into district-level selection policies examined policies from
80 school districts across the United States. The policies were examined to determine the status
of selection policies in school libraries and if the policies reflect the recommendations of
professional literature. Through content analysis, we determined that most of the school library
selection policies included at least half of the expected key components. However, there is a need
for school librarians to advocate for revision of policies to keep them current and provide
effective guidance for school librarians as they make selections for their collections.
