Established nearly 45 years ago, GOBI® Library Solutions from EBSCO (formerly
YBP Library Service), has seen growth and development in both breadth and depth
of coverage from across the publishing world. Likewise, as society becomes more
diverse, inclusive, and aware, libraries have been dedicating a higher attention to
conscious, global practices that best reflect and support their diverse communities.
This global view and critical self-analysis is exemplified by the Canadian academic
librarianship community who are, among other actions, actively seeking to address
the Calls to Action presented by the Truth and Reconciliation commission of Canada.
Inspired by the practice of fellow industry professionals, staff librarians at GOBI®
Library Solutions have also taken up these Calls to Action. This session will highlight
a case study of this practice, appearing the upcoming special issue of Collection
Management, and will offer a brief overview of how Canadian academic
librarianship and global social justice initiatives with regards to Indigenous peoples
have influenced the review of tools within, and best practices recommended for
collecting from, GOBI® with relation to content by and about Indigenous peoples.
