Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

The Ingalls Library and Museum Archives reaffirms and emphatically supports the CMA’s DEI goals, as embodied in the 2018 plan. In support of these efforts, the library and archives will aggressively expand our collections, focusing on BIPOC and underrepresented groups and addressing these areas in our biannual review of our collection development policy. In addition to the acquisition of new material, we will review and update descriptions of library and archival materials for inclusive language and reparative description. The Ingalls Library and Museum Archives must be a space welcoming to new voices, new ideas, and new endeavors, to become a locus for engagement within and outside the library and the museum.
