Yes, please do go ahead. This is not our working copy for our department,
but intended for BAISL use (and please feel free to share with faculty,
etc, as some of you have asked). Also, meant to be a start for all of BAISL

Hi! If we have a few other international voices to add, should we add it
to the current tab?
Thanks for doing this--it's awesome!

I am belatedly carrying out my action item from our last meeting.
Part of our conversation at the last meeting involved some discussion of
specific areas in which different libraries have focused collection
development--often around exposing minority voices, a range of perspectives
on international issues, etc. We decided it might be helpful to pool our
knowledge, and I was tasked with creating and sharing a spreadsheet to get
Please find the spreadsheet here
I thought that -for now-it might be easiest for anyone who wants to
contribute to start a new tab and name it the topic of their special
collection. I recall, for example, that one of our colleagues had put
extended effort into collection development on the topic of South African
history, and other specific areas were mentioned by others at the meeting.
At Castilleja, we are preparing for an International Reading Challenge
in spring semester, in which students can opt into reading one book from
each continent. We tried to get reasonable coverage of different voices,
different countries, and materials to meet the needs of students in 6-12
grades. We also tried, as much as possible, to offer positive views into
different people's lives. My colleague Melaine Huyck-Aufdermaur should get
a fantastic amount of credit for leading the charge on this initiative. I
have shared our list as the first tab on this spreadsheet, and cannot wait
to see what other schools add.
Thank you for always being wonderful colleagues,
