In this panel session, our speakers will address the need for more diverse representation in a field where determining selection and providing access to rare, unique, and original materials are fundamental tasks to daily work. They will give an overview of the past efforts that led to the current status of active recruitment of librarians from underrepresented groups to consider joining our field.
