2021 Product Review

Throughout 2021, we have been working closely with our customers to provide solutions that help libraries respond to ever changing community needs. Libraries have continued to take advantage of collectionHQ’s branch closure functionality as the COVID-19 situation develops, and our customer facing teams are providing advice on how each library can adapt these tools to their individual circumstances.

July marked a milestone in collectionHQ’s history with the release of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Analysis. Libraries can now instantly discover important information about the supply of DEI material in their collections and improve the representation of diverse communities.

This tool continues to evolve, and many significant enhancements have been introduced since its release, including:

  • Enhancements to the DEI page to offer users flexibility in how they view the analysis.
  • Indicators added to some collectionHQ Fiction and Non-Fiction action plans to highlight DEI material.
  • The addition of even more data sources for collectionHQ to identify DEI material to be analyzed.
  • The option for libraries to “self-classify” material in their collection as DEI to broaden the reach of the analysis.

In 2022, we look forward to introducing DEI Analysis to new markets and continuing to enhance the collectionHQ toolset.
