Since the mid 1980s academic libraries have established minority residency programs in an effort to increase the representation of librarians of color in their institutions. Now more than a decade later, these programs continue to be developed. Essays written by librarians of color who participated in residency programs, and administrators whose institutions made the programs possible, remind us of the continuing need for diversity in academic libraries.

Editorial Reviews

?This important collection of descriptive and personal essays provides experience-based insights on minority residency programs in academic libraries...This book will be of great value to all academic libraries with residency programs, to those that are considering them, and, most importantly, to those academic libraries that wish to enact their values of both diversity and professional development. It will appeal to a wide audience, including administrators, practitioners, MLS students, and everyone ineterested in diversity issues and librarianship. The work is a solid contribution to the literature on racial and ethnic diversity in academic libraries, and a unique opportunity to encounter the voices of the new generation of minority librarians entering the profession, as well as those of the new generation of minority leadership in academic libraries. Highly recommended.??The Journal of Academic Librarianship
