Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement
In the spring of 2021, the Tredway Library at Augustana College (Rock Island, IL) implemented an audit of the library's print book collection to see if there were gaps in representation of the voices of authors of differing races/ ethnicities; genders; or sexual orientations. With the results of this audit, Augustana librarians now have a better understanding of which voices and perspectives are missing and/or underrepresented in the print collection. This toolkit is intended to assist other libraries / information organizations in undertaking similar diversity audits of their own.
The authors now have an article on this topic, available at: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0099133322000337. A preprint will be made available after the publisher's embargo period.
Keywords: academic library, diversity audit, dei audit, collection development, diversity equity and inclusion,
