Renewals Reach: Racial/ethnic diversity in music technical librarianship

In a presentation at the 2019 Music Library Association Annual Meeting, music catalogers Treshani Perera, Monica Figueroa, and Rahni Kennedy – along with Special Collections/Archives leader Sandy Rodriguez – explored the ongoing challenges of diversity, equity, and inclusion in librarianship. They contextualize these challenges within the specialization of technical librarianship (e.g., cataloging, serials, acquisitions) and highlight the layers of experience, career mobility, and need for community as BIPOC navigate the speciality in particular and librarianship in general. 

The presentation includes a bibliography, which references  my data from the low morale study on racial and ethnic minority academic librarians.
