Individual Presentation A: Queer Collections Connections (Megan Mac Gregor)
This presentation will explain the importance of highlighting LGBTQ+ collections through the use of collaborative programing with stakeholders in the community the library serves. It will address the issues that arise when creating and marketing these events as well as some best practices.

Individual Presentation B: Knowledge of LGBTQ+ Studies as a Form of Diversity and Inclusion in Academic Libraries (Vince Graziano)
From its roots in the medical literature of the 19th century, LGBTQ+ studies has evolved significantly. By examining 10,017 citations, this study presents the most cited disciplines, books, authors, and journals within LGBTQ+ studies. This knowledge is a powerful tool with which to address LGBTQ+ users, enhancing librarian approachability and user experience within the broader context of diversity and inclusion for the LGBTQ+ academic community.

Individual Presentation C: The Carmen Collection, using an anniversary to highlight underrepresented stories at your institution (Tamar Chute)
Every institution has an anniversary coming. At Ohio State, archivists are using the 150th celebration to research the stories of underrepresented populations, to build the archives, and highlight these stories with unique programming. The university archivist will discuss opportunities and challenges faced, suggest how others might leverage their anniversaries to uncover a broader history, and share examples of outreach and engagement programs.
