Building diverse, inclusive, and equitable collections is on all of our minds. For collections that deeply reflect all identities and experiences, you must think beyond “who” is represented and begin to think “how” they are represented. The Diverse BookFinder, a research database that helps you evaluate your picture book collection, uses nine categories that build a framework for evaluating the “how” that can be easily applied across all collections, not just picture books.
