Diversity Audits for Schools
How much of your digital collection reflects the diverse makeup of your school community? Where are the gaps? A diversity audit can help answer these questions! This powerful service is available at no cost to all eligible schools with Sora and provides valuable insights into the inclusivity of your collection.
How does a diversity audit work?
Our diversity audit tool leverages BISAC subject headings and Recommended Lists created by OverDrive’s Digital Content Librarians to provide your school a more holistic, data-driven look at the diversity of your Sora collection. Because our Recommended Lists are updated continuously, it’s important to perform a diversity audit annually or biannually. All you need to do is sign up!
Why should my school request a diversity audit?

It’s free, and all the work is done for you! Simply sign up below to get your report. (Please allow at least five business days to receive your audit results.)
