At the Harvard Library, our work is enriched by diversity. Our unique and wide-ranging abilities, experiences, and perspectives are integral to achieving excellence in research, teaching, and learning for our users, our collections, and our workplace. We believe that an inclusive environment that cultivates and promotes understanding, respect, and collaboration across our workforce inspires and enables our success.
Our work with faculty, students, and researchers who explore answers to intellectual questions, both enduring, and new, and who seek solutions to the world's most consequential problems, requires that we reflect and champion diversity.
In 2016, President Faust created a University-wide task force composed of faculty, students, and staff to consider a set of important and interrelated questions designed to advance us on the path from diversity to belonging.

The Harvard Library Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Team provides strategic guidance on building both a diverse workforce and inclusive collections, practices and services, The Team serves in an advisory capacity to the Vice President for the Harvard Library, University Librarian and the Roy E. Larsen Librarian for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
