  • Description

Barbara Dewey and Loretta Parham join 50 other librarians, including Tracie Hall, Emma Bradford Perry, and Hannelore B. Rader, to explore one of the major issues facing the profession—diversity. This innovative guide explores how librarians can ensure that their services, staff, and collections truly reflect our multicultural society. Chapters cover strategic planning; recruiting and retaining minorities; reaching out to new users; marketing to underrepresented populations; building collections for marginalized groups; overcoming the digital divide; assessment; and other important topics. The contributors provide numerous forms and documents including library diversity plans; residency and intern job descriptions; recruitment materials; programming plans and documents; and web resources. With guidance drawn from real experience in public and academic libraries, this unique guide will help to make diversity a reality in libraries.
