JEID at Oxy Library
The Oxy Library JEID committee exists to ensure that the policies and practices of the library foster a welcoming, supportive, respectful, and equitable environment for all library patrons and all library staff. Our work includes creating and sponsoring JEID themed exhibits, evaluating accessibility in the physical library as well as our resources, attending and hosting continuing education events about JEID, and working to enhance diverse and inclusive collections and cataloguing. We support the mission of Occidental College and its Office of Equity and Diversity.
