Media Diversity in Libraries
From ALA’s Don Wood:
This guideline is designed to provide libraries, library consortia, and library networks with a centralized list of strategies and actions to help them fulfill one of their key responsibilities: to provide access to a diverse collection of resources and services. Special attention has been given to the acquisition of and access to small, independent, and alternative sources–including locally produced ones–in all formats: print, AV media, and electronic.
This material from OIF has been long-awaited by those who’ve been aware of the subcommittee working on it. I am very glad to see the report. I think it’s great, and I hope it receives wide attention. -Rory
