Women's Education des femmes, Spring 1994 - Vol. 11, No. 1
Authors: Margot Schenk
In this article, the author discusses the role of librarians in an inclusive university. A library is designed volume by volume as an ever-changing, growing entity. Materials are intended to represent the values and interests of men and women, persons of diverse cultural and ethnic origins, differently abled persons, and persons of different sexual orientations. The shape of the library collection, access to the collection, and the place of the library in our institutions also must be considered in order for a library to be inclusive. However, the author suspects many of our university library collections are somewhat exclusive.
