Project poster

This project applies collection development and management methods to improve users’ access to diverse early childhood resources that are relevant, accurate, inclusive, and free of bias. High-quality diverse books that children can both identify with and learn from are key to building an understanding of the world, a respect for its cultures, and in shaping a positive self-identity. As a result of this project, educators will also be able to more efficiently select and utilize resources aligned with their needs, which in turn has a positive impact on students.
