APALA is pleased to extend a complimentary one-year membership to current Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Diversity Scholars.
The Diversity Scholars, all library and information science master’s degree candidates, receive financial assistance, training in leadership, and formal mentoring. The program is part of the ARL’s Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce (IRDW). For more information on ARL’s IRDW, see here: http://www.arl.org/diversity/init/index.shtml.
APALA greatly supports efforts to increase diversity in the library workforce and invites these promising future leaders to join and participate in our organization.
