The Kaleidoscopic Concern from ACRL
The Kaleidoscopic Concern - "This annotated bibliography on racial and ethnic diversity in librarianship by Kaetrena D. Davis-Kendrick includes new areas of study such as gender issues and white privilege with regard to racial minority and ethnic librarians. It covers the concerns, goals and strategies surrounding the recruitment, retention, and advancement of librarians of color and contains over 80 years of the profession's earliest training initiatives and current best practices. Also traced in this bibliography is the evolution of the specific idea of affirmative action to the more nebulous concept of diversity in libraries. Books and book chapters, dissertations and theses, articles, poster sessions, presentations, reports from professional library associations and consortia, and multimedia objects are annotated in here"
