Abstract
Background: Inclusive searches take into account diversity, equity and inclusion values and implement DEI actions at all stages of the search. In the library environment, we need to address common practices and beliefs1 that may conflict with DEI values and negatively impact search outcomes, and replace these instead with more inclusive practices. Items below are listed in relative order of the search process itself. This Best Practices document should be used in consultation with the “Library Recruitment Process” checklist (linked on the Intranet).
