  • Description

    Academic residency programs for early career librarians have existed since 1984 to address a lack of diversity in the library profession. Despite their continuation and expansion, awareness of these programs and their structural makeup varies among library professionals. This panel will discuss and compare five new and established residency programs and the polysemous definition of diversity in the academic library.
