Inform, Educate, and Engage: Anti-Racism Resources


“Libraries inform, educate and engage. Libraries serve communities. At the same time, OLA recognizes that North American libraries are rooted in a history of colonialism, anti-Black racism, and white supremacy. In Canada, we are a profession lacking in cultural diversity. It will take work and intention for libraries to change.

Recognizing that OLA members come from a broad spectrum of identities and experience in anti-racism work, OLA will use this space to share resources to support personal (un)learning, professional (un)learning, and institutional change in libraries and workplaces.
