ILA Ad Hoc Committee for Diversity & Inclusion Seeks Members

Diversity is an issue that is inherent and essential to librarianship. It impacts the communities we serve, the profession of librarianship, and the mission of libraries. Diversity is a Key Action Area for the American Library Association (ALA), and its prioritization is shown not only through the existence and activities of the ALA Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services, but also through the various committees, roundtables, interest groups, and initiatives organized by ALA affiliates, divisions, and state organizations (American Library Association, n.d.).
