Lincoln Trails Library System Diversity Forum
LTLS will be hosting a free statewide diversity forum to be held at the Hawthorn Suites, in Bloomington on March 27, 2007 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Bernice and Emily are interested in going.
Emily and her grad assistant are currently compiling information on campus, community and library resources. She is looking at the web sites at Penn State and the University of Tennessee. The University of Tennessee's website is specifically for the library committee. Emily will use the undergrad template to set up the website. The only issue with the site is where to link it from. The site should be linked from the Library's main Gateway page, and not just from the Undergraduate Library page. The site will be titled Diversity instead of Multicultural.
