I received a very nice letter from the curator saying I was right and she could have done more. However, she was also limited to the books and material that the library had in its collection. She also thanked me for my email and said she welcomed my comments, she mentioned that the library is expanding its transgender collection.
In addition, she noted that they are “putting together a student library diversity advisory committee for this exact purpose-- to find out how the libraries can better serve all students here, and if you would be interested in becoming a part of that once it is formed, please let me know.” Hmm… I smell another committee that I am going to be on; it will be hard to turn down since I negatively commented out their lack of diversity.
Haha, well, I guess it would be difficult to turn the committee position down, but as you've said, one person at a time.ReplyDelete
Such a lame excuse. Go find the material so nothing is missing from the exhibition. Pushing it on to the what the students want instead of looking at the short comings of the curator is just another way of denying.ReplyDelete
But join the committee and help to educate them.
I linked over at QWB. Hope you like what I said.
I definitely see a committee position for you in the near future!ReplyDelete
