The editorial serves as an overview of and introduction to the Library Diversity and Residency Studies Journal, a new independent, peer-reviewed journal which will engage with topics related to the broad topic of diversity, equity, and inclusion in libraries, as well as the more specific topic of library diversity residencies. The editorial also discusses the IMLS-funded project which led to the creation of the journal, including the series of Diversity Institutes and workshops which comprised the project, and the rationale for creating the journal as a spinoff effort. The editorial concludes with summary findings from the project regarding the current state of library diversity residencies in the United States.
