Embedding the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion across our University is one of the priorities set out in the University's Strategic Plan 2019-23.
The purpose of striving to diversify the library is to ensure that people who are marginalised by society’s perspectives – for example, by race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, physical ability, or socioeconomic class – are better represented.
We thank the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Office for supporting our library collections development.

The library wants your suggestions for new material to add to our collections that cover overlooked voices and under-represented communities. Please submit your suggestion to Library.GalwayMayo@atu.ie and we’ll do our best to make the library collections more inclusive.
We are looking for academic colleagues to work with us on diversifying our collections. If you are looking for assistance with developing collections to support a developing curriculum, please get in touch with your Subject Librarian.
