Paper on achieving ethnic diversity in academic and research libraries

A relatively new (July 2007) paper has been released entitled “Achieving Racial and Ethnic Diversity among Academic and Research Librarians: The Recruitment, Retention, and Advancement of Librarians of Color.” Authored by the ACRL Board of Directors ACRL Task Force and produced by Teresa Y. Neely and Lorna Peterson, the paper provides a literature review and recommendations for consideration.

A companion piece to the paper also exists. Authored by Julie Todaro, this piece summarizes the recommendations, identifies a range of ideas to put them into action, and highlights those currently being implemented by the ACRL.
