Disability on the Shelf – Looking for Representation in Library Collections In-Person

When asked, we all can think of a book, movie, or TV show that features a disabled character, but we don’t often think about the representation itself. With diversity and representation increasingly a part of our Collection Development practices, it is important we don’t continue to overlook this aspect. In this webinar, we invite participants to learn about disability, to gain an awareness of representation, and learn vocabulary and resources to evaluate materials.

Learning Outcomes:
Introduction to disability as a facet of diversity representation
Concepts of disability
Awareness of tropes, stereotypes, and representation in popular media
Vocabulary to discuss and evaluate materials
