Abstract

Decolonisation is high on the agenda in many universities and library staff are increasingly contributors to the discussions of how these issues affect our collections and our work with students. In this article, University of Lincoln (UoL) Academic Subject Librarians Oonagh Monaghan and Hope Williard outline their backgrounds and interest in initiatives to decolonise the curriculum and equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) from an intersectional perspective. They reflect on how the lessons of library and heritage conferences and events held between 2019 and 2021 influenced their
planning and practice at UoL. Potential approaches to decolonisation and EDI
within the library setting and plans for future collaborative projects are
presented and shared.
