Program Description:
This program highlights the role of Chinese American librarians in connecting
with and serving the library communities, especially the communities of minority
groups. Program presenters will address issues relating to the needs of minority
users, their socializing patterns and the specialties of minority librarians
in satisfying these needs. The presenters will also share successful strategies
for promoting the needs of minority users including Chinese Americans and
the visibility of minority librarians, especially Chinese American librarians,
their leadership and social skills, and their relationships within and with
outside library communities.
