human resource development and recruitment circle with several people of various ethnicities

The ALA Office for Human Resource Development and Recruitment (HRDR) is dedicated to the development and management of “human” resources within libraries. The office acts as an advocate for “best practices” in the development of policies that best serve the needs of library management and employees. While supporting its ongoing mission, HRDR also offers financial and employment information assistance to library workers and stimulates as well as encourages research in these areas.
