A presentation at the joint Upper Midwest Digital Collections Conference and Minnesota Digital Library Annual Meeting in 2020.
The diversity of a digital collection is often assessed by considering the diversity of its content. In order for collections to be truly inclusive, however, they need to emphasize usability alongside broad representation. The University of Cincinnati Libraries discusses how diversity and accessibility are intersectional considerations of digital collections, and introduces newly implemented workflows and standards designed to create accessible, inclusive digital collections that broaden usability for all.
