Intercultural Leadership Toolkit for Librarians: Building Awareness to Effectively Serve Diverse Multicultural Populations
Allard, Suzie; Mehra, Bharat; Qayyum, M. Asim
Education Libraries, v30 n1 p5-12 Sum 2007
This paper presents five tools for librarians to use in building effective intercultural communication that reaches out to diverse populations. Librarians can more successfully cross intercultural boundaries if they are aware of the key tenets of intercultural communication and information provision, and then apply the five leadership tools in extending traditional information creation-organization-dissemination processes. The five tools are derived from an extensive literature review and from findings from seminar discussions with library and information science students. (Contains 1 footnote.)
