Ithaca College Library’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and accessibility (DEIJA) is driven by a belief in the essentialness and value of DEIJA to the work of the library and Ithaca College as a whole. The library strives to focus on what can be done, rather than trying to do everything. An emphasis on small but intentional DEIJA projects, in keeping with the available resources, will allow the library to engage in DEIJA work with the potential for positive impacts. It is through this intentionality that we will be able to create an organization focused on the integration of DEIJA practices into all the work of the library, while supporting and contributing to the success of the college.
