SIE 8: Going Forward: Positioning Library and Information Science Graduate Programs for 21st Century Practice
Going Forward: Positioning Library and Information Science Graduate Programs for 21st Century Practice
Building on the challenges and opportunities identified in a recent meeting and report, the Institute of Museum and Library Services seeks to engage iSchool participants in tangible steps toward further developing a diverse workforce of librarians. Rather than seeing one another as competitors in the recruitment of iSchool students, this session will bring together participants from across library and information science programs to identify concrete actions aimed at addressing the grand challenge of diversifying the field. Participants are encouraged to brainstorm priorities, build relationships with other attendees, and develop actions plans for the future.
