Audit Lists

How does a Diversity Audit work?

Using BISAC subject headings and OverDrive-created Recommended Lists, we can provide partners a better view of the diversity of their digital library as well as help identify opportunities to expand areas of the collection. Our Recommended Lists are continuously updated, making it important for libraries to add diversity audits to their annual collection development goals.
