Online Doc With Dignity and Respect: Serving Homeless People in Library Communities

by Michael Santangelo on Thu, Jul 16, 2009 at 09:28 am

Slide presentation from the Subcommittee on Services to Poor and Homeless People's 2009 ALA Annual Conference program.  The program was  held at the Hyatt Regency McCormick on July 12th from 10:30 to 12:30.

The Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services (ODLOS) Advisory Committee provides advice and support to the ODLOS on the areas of diversity, literacy and outreach.  The Advisory Committee is comprised of member groups that represent diverse viewpoints and constituents and will provide a two way forum to communicate member needs to ODLOS and for the Office to share information with member groups.  The Advisory Committee members will offer dynamic perspectives to help guide the strategic direction of ODLOS, will assess program effectiveness, encourage the exploration of new ideas and initiatives, and strengthen the growth of equity and inclusion within the American Library Association and the profession as a whole.  Members are appointed to the ODLOS Advisory Committee through recommendations from the Presidents/Chairs of the stakeholder committees and organizations, with an additional three members appointed by the ALA President-elect.
