ALISE (Association for Library and Information Science Education) Releases Board Statement on Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion

From the ALISE (Association for Library and Information Science Education):

2017-08-24_13-08-56In light of events in several countries that were instigated by values that are contrary to the Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE), the ALISE Board of Directors reaffirms its commitment to, and promotion of, diversity, equality, and inclusion in the library and information science (LIS) education and professional community, and condemns racism, hate, bigotry, and violence.

Diversity and inclusion are core elements of the LIS curriculum. To help LIS instructors teach and promote diversity, equality, and inclusion in their curriculum, we have compiled a list of recent works. This list is intended to serve as a living document. We encourage LIS educators, professionals, and students to use these resources in relevant learning settings to further promote these values within the communities we serve.
