Services to Special Populations

The ALA Office for Literacy and Outreach Services (OLOS) serves the Association by identifying and promoting library services that support equitable access to the knowledge and information stored in our libraries and provides information and resources on improving service to traditionally underserved populations.

This page is a pathfinder to resources for serving a wide range of populations that may be underserved, where specialized resources may be desirable--including those for linguistically, ethnically, or nationally diverse populations.
