- Multicultural issues in reference work, library instruction, and other library programs


- Recruiting, hiring, and mentoring a diverse staff


- History of services to specific groups


The information will be covered through class lectures, exercises, and a term project in which students will investigate the information needs of a specific ethnic group in a particular area.

Illness Due to Flu
The H1N1 Flu Pandemic may impact classes this semester. If any of us develop flu-like symptoms, we are being advised to stay home until the fever has subsided for 24 hours. So, if you exhibit such symptoms, please do not come to class. Notify me at 874-xxxx or xxx@uri.edu of your status, and we will communicate through the medium we have established for the class. We will work together to ensure that course instruction and work is completed for the semester.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have posted simple methods to avoid transmission of illness. These include: covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing; frequently washing your hands to protect from germs; avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth; and staying home when you are sick. For more information, please view www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/habits.htm <http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/habits.htm> . URI information on the H1N1 will be posted on the URI website at www.uri.edu/news/H1N1 <http://www.uri.edu/news/H1N1> , with links to the www.cdc.gov <http://www.cdc.gov> site.



Relevance of LSC 525 to Other Courses and to the Field


1. This is a subject related to all areas of librarianship. The increased ethnic diversity of the U.S. and other countries and the increase in relations between people of different cultures and countries affect collection development, technical services, reference services, library instruction, library programming, staffing, and all other aspects of library services.


2. It will be an important and useful course, regardless of which aspect of librarianship students concentrate on, or what type of libraries students work in. Public, academic, and school libraries have all developed approaches that can be useful in other settings.


3. This course will complement information conveyed in other LSC courses. It will describe problems and challenges unique to serving diverse populations, and some possible solutions.


Course Mastery Objectives


The student shall be able to learn about and plan services for ethnic groups (s) new to them by:


- Finding out national information about a target group - history, statistics, organizations, resources, etc. GSLIS Educational Outcomes 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 20


- Finding out local information about this group - history in the area, demographic information, information needs, relevant organizations and resources, etc. GSLIS Educational Outcomes 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 20


- Finding out about the group by using printed and other information sources, and by conducting surveys. GSLIS Educational Outcomes 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 20


- Developing relevant collections to serve the targeted group. GSLIS Educational Outcomes 4, 14, 20


- Being aware of cataloging and classification issues for materials relevant to the targeted group. GSLIS Educational Outcomes 4, 14, 20


- Developing a small, but very relevant reference collection for the group. GSLIS Educational Outcomes 4, 14, 20


- Investigating modes of reference service which may be most useful. for this group. GSLIS Educational Outcomes 4, 7, 14, 20


- Developing library programs and programming to serve the literary, cultural, and educational needs of the group. GSLIS Educational Outcomes 1, 7, 14, 16, 20


- Investigating learning theories which may be relevant to the target group and which may be applied in designing direct and indirect library instruction. GSLIS Educational Outcomes 6, 14, 20


- Developing a plan to recruit members of the group, as clerical staff, paraprofessionals, and as professional librarians. GSLIS Educational Outcomes 1, 7, 12, 15, 16, 19, 20


It is hoped that by focusing on one group (per student) for the duration of the course, students can use the same (or similar) techniques to learn about and to serve other ethnic groups new to them in a library setting.

MINI-PROJECTS (to ultimately be part of the Term Report) (40% of grade for this course). Use your readings and look up other information in order to compile these reports.


1. Part I - Write a brief overview about your group. What is their history in the US? Where have they settled? What is their history in your area (as far as you can tell at this time)? What kinds of demographic information can you find about your group? (Ages, educational levels, length of time in country, literacy level in English and other languages, etc.) Examples of useful sources for this assignment that you may find in local libraries include:

(1). ^ American Immigrant Cultures: Builders of a Nation.

(2). Appiah, Kwame Anthony and Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (eds.) The Dictionary of Global Culture.

(3). Encyclopedia of World Cultures. GN550.E53 1991

An older book, entitled World Librarianship by Richard Kryzs (NY: Dekker) may be available in some libraries and would be good for historical background, but be sure to use more current sources, as well.) Check LISTA and Library Literature under the name of your country of origin. Also use Managing Cultural Differences: Leadership Skills and Strategies For Working in a Global World by Robert J. Moran, Philip R. Harris, and Sarah V. Moran for current information on business cultures in countries of origin.
