New Toolkit: “Building and Maintaining LGBTQ+ Picture Book Collections”
The following toolkit was recently shared on the Western University institutional repository.
From the Abstract:
The LGBTQ+ community has had to continuously fight for their rights, including their right to be represented in the library. This toolkit provides instruction on how to develop and manage a library collection of LGBTQ+ children’s picture books. It is split into four sections that include a guide to evaluating materials, recommended picture books, a guide to fighting censorship, and a list of recommended resources.
This toolkit was officially launched at the 2019 Alberta Library Association Conference [April 25-27] at the workshop, Is Tango All We Get? Evaluating LGBTQ+ children’s picture books in library collections.
