2015 CIDLIS Program is Available

Tuesday, September 15, 2015

The program for the 2015 Conference on Inclusion and Diversity in Library and Information Science (CIDLIS) is now available. This year features more than 25 speakers discussing inclusion and diversity issues in environments ranging from public libraries and academia to iSchools, cataloging systems, and prisons.

The conference will be held at the University of Maryland on October 15 and 16, 2015. The events of Thursday, October 15 will be in the evening and include two concurrent workshops: a session for faculty and doctoral students interested in conducting research and teaching on topics of diversity and inclusion in library and information science, and a session for library professionals interested in collecting data to improve services to diverse populations. The conference presentations will take place during the day on Friday, October 16.

As always, attendance is free (and so is the food). Register before October 8 via the online form, or send an e-mail to lisdiversity@gmail.com with the word “Registration” in the subject line. Please include your name, title, organization, and contact information.
