Collection Development Webinar Today

From Tessa Michaelson Schmidt, Public Library Youth and Inclusive Services Consultant, Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction

Dear Library Staff Serving Youth,

Please considering registering for this FREE webinar today hosted by the Association of Library Service to Children. All public collections for youth in our state could benefit from a refreshed consideration of Native American authenticity. Spots in this webinar are limited; however, anyone who registers will get a link to the archived session.

Description: Are you worried that your collection of books by/about Native peoples is in need of a 21st century update so that it accurately reflects Native peoples of the past and present? Are you concerned that your collection has too many biased depictions of them? In this webinar, Dr. Debbie Reese will offer tips and ideas to think about as you select and weed your collections.
