The annual Diversity and Outreach Fair celebrates library services, programs and collections to underserved and under-represented communities.

Enjoy the festive atmosphere while networking and learning about these important programs! Sponsored by DEMCO, Inc. 

During this year's Fair, Dr. Nicole A. Cooke, Spectrum Doctoral Fellow and assistant professor and MS/LIS program director at the iSchoolat Illinois, will be honored with the 2017 American Library Association (ALA) Achievement in Library Diversity Research. The Diversity Research Grants Advisory Committee, a subcommittee of the Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services Advisory Committee, are pleased to recognize her for her contributions to the profession and her promotion of diversity within it. Achievement is defined as a body of work or a groundbreaking piece whose dissemination advances our understanding of or sparks new research in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
