LGBTQ-Inclusive Collections: School Librarian Self-Reflections and Collection Development Guide (Volume 50, No.4, pgs 22-29)



Standard: $3.99
Members: $0.00

Description

Altobelli and Lambert reflect on recent attacks on the LBGTQ+ community and the tendency to assume representing this community in a school library collection isn’t necessary. They ask readers to consider, what about learners whose identities a school librarian may or may not know. They offer both LGBTQ+ term definitions as well as collection and weeding suggestions to help in collection selection.
