Abstract
Since 2018, the ISU Library has implemented programs and policies to engage library staff at all levels in cultural competence and DEI learning. Programs include facilitated book discussions, an online learning site in Canvas, and a speaker series. Policies include the requirement for all library staff to report DEI efforts on annual performance reviews. Reviews of policies and hiring practices are also underway. The goal of these programs and policies is to make the library a more inclusive space for the ISU community and library staff.
