Discovering Librarianship - Our Shared Vision
By 2013, Discovering Librarianship will have significantly increased the profession’s capacity to recruit high school and college students at the local level through a network of in-the-field recruiters; provided the profession with a new set of recruitment materials with which to engage this growing and diverse population; developed a cooperative leads management system for recruitment which can be used by several diversity recruitment programs; and delivered valuable information and support to high school and college students interested in careers in libraries. The long-term results will include higher visibility for libraries and librarianship and a more substantial pipeline from which to recruit a diverse workforce better able to serve the nation’s increasingly diverse population.
The cooperative leads management system and recruitment materials created through the Discovering Librarianship project will be available here as they are developed. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
