The Inclusive Services Assessment and Guide for Wisconsin Public Libraries
Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction
This resource was designed to be used by individuals and groups as an ongoing reflection tool. Inclusion is not a one-size-fits-all concept, nor a complete-and-move-on challenge. The checklist and supporting resources are meant to help individual libraries evaluate current services as well as plan for the future. Ultimately, changes and improvements depend on the leadership of library administration. The checklist is organized by areas of library service identified in the Wisconsin Public Library Standards. Each section provides a straightforward checklist that can be answered with Yes, No, In Progress, or Not Applicable. Each statement is subjective to the institution and the perspectives of those completing the checklist. The "Inclusive Services Assessment and Guide" was designed by Wisconsin public library and public library system staff for Wisconsin public library directors, staff, and boards with the intent to foster inclusive library environments where everyone is safe, welcomed, and respected. This resource was developed to support libraries in implementing the Inclusive Services Statement and intentionally complements the 2018 Wisconsin Public Library Standards. [This report was produced by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Public Library Development Team and the participants in the 2018 Inclusive Services Institute.]
