Individual Presentation: A. The Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC): Modelling Strong Governance and Un-Colonized Mutual Aid to Uplift Diversity and Inclusivity in Digital Libraries (Brian W. Keith, Laurie Taylor)
The Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) is a collaborative, international digital library of Caribbean and circum-Caribbean resources, providing access and preservation for materials from archives, libraries, museums, and private collections. dLOC exemplifies shared governance and mutual aid, a model transnational digital collaborative community serving diverse populations and for promoting bridge building, intersectionality, and inclusion.

Individual Presentation B: University Archives and Ethnic Studies Programs: Why it is important to share university history with current students (Delphia Williams)
University presidents and chancellors have sought to dismantle ethnic studies programs and this disproportionately affects black and brown students. University Archives can help aid students in their struggle to preserve these programs. It can arm students with information on the history of these programs, the benefits they have provided and the additional services that have grown out of the establishment of ethnic studies programs.

Individual Presentation C: Celebrating Cuba! Global Access to the Cuban National Library's Catalog Records (David Van Kleeck)
This talk outlines a collaborative effort with Cuba's national library to open their collections to researchers around the world. This initiative includes loading their catalog records into WorldCat. Over 130,000 records have been added to the WorldCat database, some of which required creating original MARC records based on images from scanned catalog cards. Opening access to these collections will have a major impact on Cuba-related scholarship.
