INDS 490: Interdisciplinary Studies Capstone Spring 2024

Engaging Diverse Voices Through Research & Resources

New LibGuide on Diversity on Research and Resources offers insight into how diverse identities and  experiences are cataloged in information management systems. The guide's section on Disability helps in developing search terms to better locate information about populations or identities that have been underrepresented and often oppressed by the systemic inequalities of scholarship and librarianship.
