This report presents the results of a recent survey launched by Research Library UK (RLUK) aiming to document the current practices and needs of member institutions when developing initiatives that aim to make collections more diverse and inclusive. The focus was placed on decolonisation efforts and the needs of professionals that lead or support them in terms of training and skills development. The motivation behind the survey was to understand the challenges that research libraries currently face with regards to decolonisation practice with the aim of providing more targeted support for the RLUK community.
