With ASEE’s growing commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion there is a push for educators to make a greater effort to improve outcomes for students from marginalized and legally protected social identities. With this commitment in mind this research investigates if engineering librarian members of ASEE have the knowledge, training, and support to incorporate inclusive teaching practices into their library instruction. This research examines the current climate for engineering librarians through an anonymous survey. The survey will collect data on inclusive teaching by engineering librarians. The study aims to answer whether librarians have the knowledge, training, and support from their library, college, and institution to engage with inclusive teaching practices.
