- Mission: To educate librarians to meet the information and service needs of diverse population
Mission: The Diverse Populations, Information, and Library Education project works to explore existing and emerging ways in which libraries in all forms are addressing the needs of their changing and diversifying communities. Our goal is to encourage, support and mentor new librarians and those interested in librarianship who have a desire to work with diverse populations, publish scholarly articles about diversity as it relates to information and libraries, and form partnerships with organizations that seek to serve these varied communities.
