Workshop attendees will gain an understanding of the parameters of cultural integrity in library audits. They will explore definitions of ‘Cultural integrity’ that underpin audits in the A.C.T. Participants will be provided with an overview of a process to approach a cultural integrity audit of your collection. This work consolidates the importance of the TL role in schools and in the fine-tuning of school library collections, resource development and the embedding of cultural integrity across curriculum in each classroom.
