Ojibwe People's Dictionary is a searchable, talking Ojibwe-English dictionary that features the voices of Ojibwe speakers.
It is also a gateway into the Ojibwe collections at the Minnesota Historical Society. Along with detailed Ojibwe language entries and voices, you will find beautiful cultural items, photographs, and excerpts from relevant historical documents. Whenever possible, we provide examples of documents in the Ojibwe language." This project is a collaboration between the University of Minnesota's American Indian Studies Department, the University of Minnesota Libraries, and the Minnesota Historical Society.
The award is presented at the Equity and Diversity Breakfast each November, and honors transformational equity and diversity work that both demonstrates outstanding leadership in equity and diversity, and is collaborative, sustainable, and linked to the stated mission and vision of the group.

Ensuring equity and diversity in the search process is essential for increasing the diversity of candidate pools for positions, and ultimately the diversity of the University community. EOAA created this online toolkit to help guide the process.
The University of Minnesota Diversity Collaborative supports a Zotero collection to provide resources to academic librarians about the current issues in diversity that affect academic libraries. As well as, to provide current information to academic librarians about how to meet the needs of a growing diverse number of students/researchers in higher education.
