Individual Presentation A: Why Equity, Inclusive, and Diversity Matters for Access and Resource Sharing Service (Xuan Lily Pang)
A snapshot of the 2018 freshmen student demographics shows an increasingly diverse student body in race, color, ethnicity, age, social economic status, and cultural or linguistic backgrounds. This presentation will argue that a library's Access and Resource Sharing (ARS) department must think bigger, rethink, reimagine and redesign the service from the perspectives of equity, inclusion, and diversity to minimize disparities in the service.

Individual Presentation B: Fly Like a Falcon: Promoting Advocacy & Outreach to Special Populations through Library Services (Edith A. Scarletto, Eileen K. Bosch, Jennifer Nyiri)
Bowling Green State University Library is intentional about accessibility, inclusion, and equity. Librarians discuss best practices for implementing and improving library services that address the special needs of three different targeted populations: FLY program participants (students with learning and attention differences), international students, and student athletes. We describe outreach, engagement strategies and instruction strategies.

Individual Presentation C: Challenging Inclusivity and Access in Academic Library Spaces and Services (Katy Mathuews, Kelly Broughton)
This presentation explores the challenges marginalized college students face as they seek to connect with their academic libraries. Grounded in two qualitative research studies focused on the concepts of sense of belonging and time poverty, the panelists explore how minoritized students are constrained in traditional college activities within libraries because of time limitations and lack of a sense of belonging.
