Design for Diversity: Towards More Inclusive Technical Systems


Design for Diversity is an IMLS-funded project focusing on the ways in which information systems embody and reinforce cultural norms, asking how we might design systems that account for diverse cultural materials and ways of knowing. To empower both users and designers of information and technical systems in libraries, and also better educate the next generation, we created a teaching and learning toolkit with case studies, readings, and other educational materials. Participants in this workshop will explore issues of diversity and inclusion in the library systems we use every day, and also add their experiences to the toolkit through feedback and suggestions.
