The forum will be held in conjunction with the annual Conference on Inclusion and Diversity in LIS (CIDLIS) and will bring together 30 community leaders and experts, including marketing consultants, to develop approaches for increasing census participation through the production of materials that benefit from professional marketing conceptualization and techniques. The materials will be available in a free online repository for download and customization by all libraries.
