The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, in collaboration with the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Diversity Alliance, will pilot a national Library Diversity Institute program that will address the needs of professionally underrepresented racial and ethnic groups and broadly advance diversity in U.S. academic libraries. UNC-Greensboro will develop and deliver two institutes for incoming ACRL diversity residents to improve their chances of successfully finding and keeping a job and encourage professional networking. An ongoing open access publication entitled Journal of Library Diversity and Residency studies will be established along with an associated webinar series to disseminate research and practical guidance for institutions seeking information on diversity and residency programs in library settings.
