Most importantly, our library is supportive of and accountable to you, our community. We understand the importance of being transparent and open about our commitments and our actions, so that you can be aware of what we are doing and hold us to our promises of being an anti-racist organization.
Our broad commitments are as follows:
As we take actions to reach these commitments we will detail them below.
We need to update and revise this Solidarity Statement, written in 2020, based on learning and activity that Campus Library staff have undertaken since then. We are currently engaged in an antiracism audit with an external consultant, and we anticipate that the recommendations from that audit’s report will help us develop our priorities and criteria for updating and revising this statement.
Anonymous submissions can be made using the Library’s feedback form. These submissions are reviewed by the Director, the Head of Public Services, Head of Collections & Course Support Services, and the Budget & Operations Administrator. Comments are forwarded to other library and campus staff if the content is relevant to their work.
