Finding Diverse Books

Over the past few years, I have been working to increase the diversity of my school library’s collection, with an eye towards the ultimate goal of having the books on our shelves reflect the reality of the society in which we live.  While I use traditional review sources, I have also found it helpful to explore online resources specifically intended to review and publicize diverse books.  A few weeks ago, as part of a conference presentation, I decided to make this handy infographic of the sites I find most helpful. Hopefully you might find it useful too! (For active links to the websites, please scroll to the bottom of this post.)
