Sky is the limit: Reaching out to the Minority Communities of Users and Librarians
Today, American libraries proactively reach out to the rapidly growing minority communities in our cities and on university campuses. Libraries must also train librarians who serve minority user needs by building diverse collections and services. This program brings together a panel of distinguished leaders in library outreach and diversity, representing ALA, national, academic, and public libraries, serving very diverse communities. Their experience and vision provide illuminating insights on this significant aspect of 21st Century librarianship.
