Resources Supporting DEIA

This NNLM guide on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) addresses increasing health equity through information and supports the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) “…commitment to embracing, strengthening, and integrating DEIA across all NIH activities to achieve the agency’s mission.” It is not a comprehensive guide and DEIA work changes frequently. This guide includes links to just a few of the many resources readily available to assist you and your organization as you take steps toward diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. These resources may be for you to consider:

  • using as an individual,
  • in your work with colleagues and your wider professional community,
  • sharing with your organization,
  • and guiding your outreach work.

Whether you work in a library, a learning environment, in healthcare, a community organization, or research, we hope these resources can guide you in providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone.

In addition to this guide, NNLM offers free training related to DEIA. View the training calendar to find scheduled classes and webinars and to locate recordings of past webinars. Listed below are webinars and classes specifically related to this topic:

A big thank you to Aubrey Williams and Dave Culhane, for their work on this guide. It is the culmination of their capstone project at the University of Washington iSchool. Region 5 staff supervised the project and the content was reviewed by several NNLM staff.

National Institutes of Health: Cultural Respect
“Culture is often described as the combination of a body of knowledge, a body of belief, and a body of behavior. It involves several elements that are often specific to ethnic, racial, religious, geographic, or social groups. This includes personal identification, language, thoughts, communications, actions, customs, beliefs, values, and institutions.”

US Department of Health and Human Services: Think Cultural Health
“This website features information, continuing education opportunities, resources, and more for health and health care professionals to learn about culturally and linguistically appropriate services, or CLAS. Launched in 2004, Think Cultural Health is sponsored by the Office of Minority Health.” Also includes a helpful Resource List.

Georgetown University National Center for Cultural Competence 
“The mission of the NCCC is to increase the capacity of health care and mental health care programs to design, implement, and evaluate culturally and linguistically competent service delivery systems to address growing diversity, persistent disparities, and to promote health and mental health equity.” NCCC website includes basic information, a self-assessment, online learning, and resources.

Medical Library Association - Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
”This site serves as a place to share information about MLA Diversity, Equity and Inclusion-related initiatives and MLA DEI Committee activities; a place to bring together communications and resources on diversity and inclusion.”

A Conceptual Map of Structural Racism in Health Care
”Longstanding racial and ethnic disparities in health care experiences contribute to unequal health and life outcomes. In this brief from the Urban Institute, a conceptual map of structural racism in health care demonstrates the connections between (1) mental models that guide how society thinks and acts; (2) unequal laws and policies that determine access to resources; and (3) racial and ethnic disparities in health care experiences and outcomes.”


U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS)
“CLAS are services that are respectful of and responsive to the health beliefs, practices, and needs of diverse patients. CLAS is a way to improve the quality of services provided to all individuals, which will ultimately help reduce health disparities and achieve health equity.”

ALA's Committee on Diversity Announces Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Scorecard for Library and Information Organizations
“ALA’s Committee on Diversity is charged with providing a forum to research, monitor, discuss, and address national diversity issues and trends. Upon seeing the need for library and information organizations to evaluate their efforts in advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion, members of the committee created the template to assist administrators and other decision-makers with gathering actionable data for strengthening diversity, equity, and inclusion in their institutions.”

Cultural Proficiencies for Racial Equity: A Framework
The Joint ALA/ARL Building Cultural Proficiencies for Racial Equity Framework Task Force was formed in 2020 and in 2022 produced “The Cultural Proficiencies for Racial Equity Framework…a tool both theoretical and practical in its orientation, as a guide for developing personal, organizational, institutional, and systems-level knowledge and understanding of the nature of racism and its many manifestations.”

ACRL's Diversity Standards Toolkit
”The following standards were developed by the Racial and Ethnic Diversity Committee of ACRL
(Association of College & Research Libraries), based on the 2001 National Association of Social Workers
Standards for Cultural Competence in Social Work Practice. The standards are intended to emphasize
the need and obligation to serve and advocate for racial and ethnically diverse constituencies. As such,
they are intended to apply to all libraries supporting academic programs at institutions of higher

Cultural Humility in Action
”Cultural humility operates in two dimensions, with our colleagues and our patrons. It is helpful to think of cultural humility as a concept with three pillars:

  • Pillar #1: A commitment to being a lifelong learner who deliberately and bravely establishes a practice of rigorous self-reflection and critique.
  • Pillar #2: A willingness to acknowledge and dismantle power differentials or imbalances based on authority or position.
  • Pillar #3: A commitment to connecting to the community you support.”

General Services Administration - Universal Design and Accessibility 
“Accessibility is about more than compliance with standards. It’s about developing solutions to meet the needs of all users, with and without disabilities. Universal design, a concept now widely used in the private sector, provides a path for federal agencies to shift to this broader focus.”

U.S. Department of Labor - Universal Design Resources
“Originally developed in response to the needs of the aging population and people with disabilities, UD has much broader applicability. It increases ease of access to products, places, and services for multiple, diverse populations. Using UD means that facilities, programs, and services take into account the broad range of abilities, ages, reading levels, learning styles, languages, and cultures in their diverse workforce and customer base.”

The Center for Universal Design in Education 
The University of Washington DO-IT offers instructors a toolkit, tips, and resources for greater accessibility to learning. Some classes include opportunities for discussion, whether as a larger class or in smaller groups. A community agreement can help to create a more inclusive discussion.

CAST - UDL on Campus: Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education
“When it comes to learning, variability is the rule not the exception. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an educational framework that guides the design of learning goals, materials, methods, and assessments as well as the policies surrounding these curricular elements with the diversity of learners in mind.”

Equal Access: Universal Design of Libraries 
“A checklist for making libraries welcoming, accessible, and usable. Libraries play an important role in ensuring that everyone has access to information in printed and electronic forms. In making these resources accessible and useful to everyone, principles of universal design (UD) can be employed.”

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services - Improving Access to Care for People with Disabilities
“The CMS Office of Minority Health works to ensure that people with disabilities receive equal access to quality health care information and services. Use this page to find tools and resources that can help you improve services and help patients understand their rights.” 

Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion - Adding Accessibility to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Initiatives 
“The inclusion of the term “accessibility” along with “diversity, equity and inclusion” (DEI) in Executive Order (EO) 14035: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) in the Federal Workforce marks a significant shift in the federal approach to inclusion of people with disabilities. Historically, federal equal employment opportunity initiatives for people with disabilities were included in disability-specific efforts, but not as part of wider DEI efforts. This policy brief discusses the significant role diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility (DEIA) plays in supporting federal employment of people with disabilities. Although meant for federal audiences, information in this brief may also be relevant to state, local and private sector employers.”


DC Office of Disability Rights - Video Trainings 
“The DC Office of Disability Rights (ODR) invites all District Government employees to participate in our short just-in-time training series.  Follow our protagonist, Bob, as he learns how to interact with people with disabilities.

Equal Access: Universal Design of Your Presentation 
“A checklist for making your presentation welcoming and accessible to everyone. Increasing numbers of people with disabilities attend professional conferences and meetings. Most presenters have the goal that everyone who attends their presentation is able to fully participate and access information. Reaching this goal involves efforts at many levels. To begin with, think about the diverse characteristics that may be present in your audience. Potential attendees may have different learning styles, may not be fluent in the language in which you are presenting, and/or may have difficulty

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Guidelines 
The UDL Guidelines are a tool used in the implementation of Universal Design for Learning, a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn. Learn more about the Universal Design for Learning framework from CAST. The UDL Guidelines can be used by educators, curriculum developers, researchers, parents, and anyone else who wants to implement the UDL framework in a learning environment. These guidelines offer a set of concrete suggestions that can be applied to any discipline or domain to ensure that all learners can access and participate in meaningful, challenging learning opportunities.

Project Expanding Non-discriminatory Access by Librarians Everywhere (ENABLE) 
“The Project ENABLE training site contains five self-paced learning modules, each focused on a major area of content related to library and information services to patrons with disabilities. Each module includes an introduction, learning objectives, a set of topics, examples, activities, related resources, and a brief self-assessment. We estimate the amount of time to engage in and complete all five learning modules to total ten hours.”

University of Michigan College of Literature, Science, and the Arts - Inclusive Teaching
“Creating an inclusive classroom environment isn’t just a nice idea—its effect on student engagement, learning, and achievement is supported by substantial academic research. There are a range of ways to define inclusive teaching, but some significant aspects of it include:Purposeful design, teaching, and assessment that is engaging, meaningful, and accessible to allTeaching that incorporates dynamic practices with an awareness of different learning stylesUsing varied means of assessment to promote student academic success and well-beingTeaching that attends to students’ different social identities and backgroundsDesign, teaching and assessment that deliberately cultivates an environment in which all students are treated fairly, have equal access to learning, feel welcome, valued, challenged, and supported in succeeding academically.”Includes 5min 37sec video.

Yale Center for Teaching and Learning: Inclusive Teaching Strategies
“Inclusive teaching refers to pedagogy that strives to serve the needs of all students, regardless of background or identity, and support their engagement with subject material. Hearing diverse perspectives can enrich student learning by exposing everyone to stimulating discussion, expanding approaches to traditional and contemporary issues, and situating learning within students’ own contexts while exploring those contexts.” Includes a PDF handout featuring theory and practical strategies for inclusive teaching.

Inclusive Teaching at the UW
The Center for Teaching and Learning provides various tools and information to assist and inform instructors. Especially worthy of note is the menu with webpages focusing on microaggressions in the classroom as well as teaching:

  • first-generation students
  • international and multilingual students
  • students with disabilities
  • student veterans

Inclusive Pedagogy for Library Instruction 
“Library instruction provides an opportunity for librarians to consider our own biases and utilize inclusive pedagogies to improve our learning environments for all. This project united librarians from across the Associated Colleges of the South to form an Inclusive Library Instruction Working Group. As a group we worked together to develop best practices and resources for inclusive pedagogy in the library classroom and developed an annotated bibliography to address the lack of library literature on this topic.”

Columbia Guidelines for Promoting an Anti-Bias and Inclusive Curriculum
“Inclusion is a value of Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons (VP&S). These guidelines for educators are intended to combat systemic racism and bias which decrease our ability to provide equitable medical care, and to increase inclusion within our medical school. Through these guidelines, co-created by VP&S students, faculty, and administrators, we aim to foster dialogue and encourage community learning around issues of bias in medicine.”


ACRL’s Diversity Standards Toolkit
“To achieve diversity in substance as well as in form, libraries have to open their arms to all perspectives and experiences. That requires competency in matters of cultural pluralism that are not intuitive and must be learned, like any other essential skill (Smith 2008, 143). To this end, these standards provide a framework to support libraries in engaging the complexities of providing services to diverse populations, and recruiting and maintaining a diverse library workforce. The standards may also serve as a starting point from which libraries can develop local approaches and goals in the context of their organizations’ mission and situation.”

CAST - Accessibility and Open Educational Resources 
Why is this important for higher education? Educators and institutions alike have a legal responsibility to provide accessible educational materials, including OERs; additionally, accessible OERs provide opportunities to create flexible learning experiences for all students in and beyond the immediate course by contributing to shared knowledge online.”

National Center on Accessible Educational Materials - The Accessible Learning Experience Podcast
“Each episode of The Accessible Learning Experience features interviews with national, state, and local leaders whose work focuses on turning learning barriers into learning opportunities. These leaders share their top tips and strategies for implementing accessibility best practices in a variety of settings. They also shine a spotlight on the partnerships and collaboration that are needed to create robust systems for the timely provision and use of accessible educational materials and technologies in support of inclusive teaching and learning practices. Episodes are released monthly and you can listen on the web through Anchor or through the podcast app of your choice.” 

Stanford University Teaching Commons - Inclusive Teaching Guide
“This guide focuses on strategies that promote inclusion, diversity, accessibility, well-being, and community. It includes recommendations for fostering inclusive learning communities, links to student support services, tips for making course materials accessible, and methods for facilitating inclusive discussions. We strongly believe that inclusive teaching practices are integral to and inseparable from good teaching practices. Truly inclusive teaching affects all aspects of a course and learning experience. While we chose to highlight this content in a separate guide, understand that these recommendations are meant to synergize and align with recommendations found across all of the Teaching Commons.”
