Gleeson Library/Geschke Center employees will share how they are incorporating anti-racist work into current and planned projects that address whose stories are told in our libraries and archives. These projects serve to elevate underrepresented voices and make them more discoverable, as well as engage the USF community in our efforts to build diverse collections. Projects discussed will include the Black Student Union (BSU) at USF digital collection, Black Lives Matter and other campus collections in archives, the Anti-Racism Resources research guide, Gleeson’s Collection Development Diversity Statement, adding diverse material to the library’s collections, correcting outdated and offensive subject headings, and improving search and retrieval tools to better expose and promote the representation of marginalized voices.
