Anyone doing an SPO related to diverse titles in their collection? Can you share resources.

Given the current climate around library books in my district and around the country, this is not an SPO topic I would choose.

I am focusing on increasing the number of diverse titles available in our collection. I'd love to collaborate with you.

So far, I have used Diverse BookFinder and the Follett Diversity Analysis Tool (part of their TitleWise analyis, but you have to contact your Follett rep to get access to the diversity portion of the analysis) to help analyze my collections. This is as far as I've gotten.

I plan on using the CCBC, Diverse BookFinder, & review journals to help find and select titles for inclusion in my collection.

I did contact Follett and am using the Diversity Analysis to write my SPO. I like your idea of CCBC to find diverse titles. I am also using the Diverse Books Toolkit from TeachingBooks.net.
