The contributions to this book highlight and deepen the conversation with new and necessary voices in sharing the achievements and experiences made by marginalized people in librarianship. It is an important primer, a guide, if you will, for creating action and enacting change in examining equity, diversity, and inclusion. -- Derrick Jefferson, communication librarian, American University
Timely and necessary, Diversity and Inclusion in Libraries: A Call to Action and Strategies for Success pushes LIS practitioners to move beyond just talking about diversity and inclusion in libraries. With a mixture of historical perspectives, proactive strategies, and first-person experiences, this compilation provides both impetus and support for action. -- Kawanna Bright, PhD, MLIS, assistant professor, Library Science, East Carolina University
