The mission of the American Library Association (ALA) Office for Human Resource Development and Recruitment (HRDR) is to facilitate the development of librarianship as a profession. To accomplish this purpose, HRDR focuses on:
education and learning programs
HRDR provides information on education and professional development in support of the principle of lifelong learning.
recruitment of a diverse workforce
To develop a diverse workforce, HRDR designs and disseminates recruitment materials, conducts recruiting activities, and encourages participation in recruitment at the grassroots level of the profession.
policies and practices in the areas of management and human resources which best serve the needs of libraries and their employees
HRDR communicates with libraries on issues relating to management and human resources and acts as an advocate for “best practices” in these areas.
HRDR stimulates and encourages research in areas related to its ongoing mission. In all of its activities, HRDR acts in conjunction with and is the coordinating body for other ALA activities relating to its mission.
