Libraries all over the world are incorporating events, displays and exhibitions as a tool to engage with students, faculty, and the larger communities as well as to raise awareness about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion throughout its walls, activities and collections. The scale of these programs can vary from small in-house displays to library-wide or loaned exhibitions or events. They can either be collaborative in nature or curated internally by students, staff or librarians. The Leatherby Libraries at Chapman University engages the wide community with its Events and Exhibition programming not only to promote DEI initiatives at the Leatherby Libraries but also to encourage the community to explore the wide variety of its collections and resources. Despite some of the time and budget challenges these efforts may bring, the Leatherby Libraries administration is committed to bringing these activities to life. The benefits offset many of the obstacles.
