Beyond Diversity Initiatives: Recruitment of BIPOC into Archives and Special Collections Librarianship
Thursday, December 10, 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (webinar)
Presenters: Azalea Camacho (Cal State LA), Amalia Castañeda (Cal State, Dominguez Hills), and Karina Cardenas (CSU Fresno)
Despite the growing focus on diversity and recruitment by library schools and institutions like SAA, ALA, ACRL among others, BIPOC not only remains underrepresented in the field, but many continue to encounter barriers within library cultures. This panel will discuss how institutions can leverage their strengths to build and foster diversity programs aimed to recruit prospective undergraduate and graduate students, and library staff and student workers into the profession.
