FY21 Annual Report on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Vega García, Susan,
Fiscal Year 2021 was a challenging year due to the COVID‐19 pandemic and nationwide unrest. The
University Library continued to operate with most staff working remotely for much of the year due to
campus closure, with a small core of essential staff working onsite to maintain services such as library
material access for the ISU community and our Interlibrary Loan patrons. During this unstable time, the
University Library continued to provide DEI professional development learning opportunities to library
staff, ISU community, and our national and global partners through our programming, services, and
guides. Below is a summary of initiatives, achievements, and outcomes by Library staff in FY21.
