Preparing Ethnic Non-Profits for the 21st Century
Salinas, Romelia; Chabran, Richard
Resource Sharing & Information Networks, v18 n1-2 p121-136 Aug 2005
As librarians involved with various technology initiatives, we have harnessed new technologies to create information systems and services to increase access to digital information for marginalized communities. The focus of this article is to share information about our work with two technology projects, the Chicano/Latino Network and the Community Digital Initiative, and the partnerships that were formed with organizations beyond the library in the process. In this discussion, reflections on the lessons learned from these experiences will be provided as well as the strategies used for forming successful partnerships with community institutions such as non-profit organizations, professional associations, local governments, and schools. (Contains 20 notes.)
