Varaxy’s Final Project

October 7, 2009

In LIBR 200 I wrote a paper on minority librarians and issues they face in terms of retention and advancement in the field.  I’d like to develop a site that focuses solely on the issues they face or provide information on how minorities can solidify their position in the field.  Also, I can present ideas on what libraries with minority employees can do to support and encourage their professional growth because they are the connection to the minority population the library serves.  I could provide stats, etc to help paint an overall picture of how important it is to encourage the relationship between minorities and the library.  I’m also thinking of a resources page that promotes minority scholarship/fellowship/opportunities in the library field.

This is a start!  Hopefully it’s something that will work out for me!  Would appreciate any suggestions/help!
