The purpose of this project is to sponsor a virtual book discussion group building on the success of two prior discussions held in 2019 and 2020 respectively. Funding will be used to provide a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment where information professionals from a variety of library types can discuss diversity, equity, and inclusion topics. Overall goal will be to provide a forum where participants can learn, discuss, and process the implications of a variety of 2I topics on their work as information professionals and in their personal lives.
