Public Libraries and Affirmative Action: Exploiting the Resources of ALA.
Pierce, Sydney
Help with the complex legal and ethical issues related to affirmative action programs is provided by several American Library Association (ALA) groups and agencies. Conference activities are sponsored by the Public Library Association, various minority caucuses, task forces of the Social Responsibilities Round Table, and committees of the Library Administration Division Personnel Administration Section. The most helpful source of information and advice is the ALA Office for Library Personnel Resources (OLPR). This office has developed guidelines, sponsored institutes, and established a minority referral network. At present OLPR compiles statistics, reviews individual libraries' existing affirmative action plans, and makes available an "Affirmative Action Packet" which is continually updated. (LS)
