Abstract

 CFLA-FCAB’s Truth and Reconciliation Report and Recommendations (2017) has galvanized Canadian libraries and library associations to undertake initiatives to decolonize libraries. Similar efforts are happening internationally as libraries work toward reconciliation. This paper presents findings of an environmental scan and analysis of library association websites from Canada, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. The findings demonstrate that library associations are taking a number of initiatives such as providing access to resources, initiating guidelines and policies, hosting events, offering financial support, and other initiatives.
