Collection Equity Award Y3 - Blue Mountain Community College Library

Blue Mountain Community College Library is dedicated to building equitable and accessible collections in service of our diverse learning community.  We will use this Collection Equity Award to expand our Health and Medicine collections, with a particular emphasis on Spanish language materials, materials focusing on Native Americans and written by Native American authors, and materials with an emphasis on rural health care and health care for transgender and non-binary patients.   For the purposes of this project, we will be considering the collection needs of both our nursing and allied health students and members of the diverse communities this collection will represent.
