The ULS Professional Development Committee is seeking librarians from lower socioeconomic backgrounds that work with students from similar backgrounds, as well as libraries that have programs/services especially for students from low income families.
We are looking for your help in delivering a program that addresses questions such as: How can librarianship encourage students from disadvantaged economic backgrounds to become librarians? How can librarianship help alleviate the financial obstacles to completing a MLS to not only help lower income students but underpaid library staff become librarians? How can librarians from low income backgrounds help and provide services for low income students on campus?
If interested, please e-mail Grace Kaletski (firstname.lastname@example.org).
