IDEA

Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility

“Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced” James Baldwin

Georgia Public Library Service's IDEA Committee developed this website to explore the ways libraries can improve equity and accessibility through programming, collections, policy, outreach, and training. Rather than providing an exhaustive list, the website has been designed to be concise, current, and curated with the best resources on inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility. We invite you to take a look, and hope the site can serve as a tool to inform and inspire.

All featured resources will be available in the archive subpage.

The goal of the Challenge is to assist each of us to become more aware, compassionate, constructive, engaged people in the quest for equity, and specifically to learn more about the Hispanic Heritage, and many communities included under the "Hispanic umbrella."
