This group provides information and networking opportunities to librarians who serve Spanish-speaking communities. Information shared focuses on collection development, programming, and overall library services in Spanish. The group also works to recruit prospective bilingual and bicultural librarians, as well as providing scholarship aid for students.
Meetings will be held quarterly and will include a mixture of networking and presentations.
The next meeting will be held on Friday, February 5th, from 1-5 pm, at the University of Illinois at Chicago's Richard J. Daley Library, 801 S. Morgan St., Room 1-470 (first floor). Dr. Nicole A. Cooke, assistant professor at the University of Illinois' Graduate School of Library and Information Science, will speak about cultural competence and how it can best serve our diverse communities.
