The Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) Region 5 is pleased to announce the Diverse Voices in Health & Medicine Collection Development Toolkit to help you build collections that support health literacy and expand access to diverse voices in libraries of all types. The toolkit features materials illuminating common and unique health issues facing underserved populations through multiple genres and formats reflecting voices of the communities served.

The Diverse Voices in Health & Medicine Collection Development Toolkit originated from bibliographies submitted by 27 libraries spanning NNLM Region 5 which received Region 5 Collection Equity Outreach Awards in 2021. Over 1400 resources in a wide variety of formats and genres comprise the Toolkit in these collections: Adult, Zines (Adult), Young Adult, and Children. Each collection can be downloaded as a searchable pdf and easily browsed with hyperlinked subject headings. The Diverse Voices Toolkit is available for free at https://nnlm.gov/nnlm-reading-club/diverse-voices-collection.
