See Us as We Are: Clara Chu--University of California at Los Angeles
Library Journal, v130 n5 pS35 Mar 2005
This article highlights the influence of Clara Chu, associate professor in the University of California at Los Angeles's (UCLA) Department of Information Studies. Her influence extends far beyond her campus. She works with many organizations to advance multiculturalism in librarianship. As a prolific researcher, writer, and speaker, Chu has given librarians an understanding of barriers to information access such as literacy, racial politics, and media misrepresentations of cultural minorities. Her research has also filled in gaping holes in the historical understanding of Asians in the Americas, their demography, and how they "preserve their culture and meet their ethnic information needs."
