This page contains a growing list of resources that relate to diversity and inclusion in the archives, information science and cultural heritage fields. Originally compiled by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion in 2016, and now maintained by the Diversity and Inclusion Committee.  

All members are encouraged and welcome to submit articles, blog and social media posts, books, AV materials, or any other resource that would be relevant to the organization on this topic. Please share any suggestions or resources with the chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee, Josué Hurtado (josue.hurtado@temple.edu).
