Diversity Programming and Outreach for Academic Libraries [electronic resource] / Hanna, Kathleen
- This book outlines issues surrounding diversity among students, faculty, and staff and how one urban university library is working to embrace and celebrate the diversity found in its building, on campus, and in the local community. This book illustrates how universities are uniquely situated to engage students in discussions about diversity and how academic libraries in particular can facilitate and ease these discussions. A Diversity Council and the projects and programs it has developed have been instrumental in this work and may serve as an inspiration and launch pad for other libraries. Diversity Programming and Outreach for Academic Libraries details anecdotal experiences, and provides practical suggestions for developing diversity programs and forming collaborations with other campus units, regardless of size, staff, or focus of the academic library. Written by three academic librarians currently active in university level diversity initiatives Provides real-world examples of diversity programming and events for academic libraries Indicates how to find commonalities in the range of diversity issues at universities internationally
