Promoting racial equity in medical libraries
WMLA encourages medical librarians to consider what they can do support racial equity in their libraries. Some steps to consider:
Ask vendors about resources by or featuring people of color
Listen and learn from professional organizations
Suggest the NLM update outdated MeSH terminology
Create and share search strings for patients of color
Attend cultural humilitytrainings
