Collection Equity: Maine Medical Center

We would review our collection and also the statewide catalog to find gaps in available print book or ebook, video and ejournal resources on issues of health equity, particularly in regards to Native American, rural health, immigrant and refugee and LGBTQ populations. Items will be made available via our statewide catalog for checkout to our health system community and to all Maine residents. Our collection goals will be to include titles that emphasize marginalized voices in memoir, fiction, narrative and graphic depiction.
