Planning Outreach Service

Instructor:

School:

Rutgers

Semester:

Description:

Barriers of language, culture, disability, or other conditions can hamper access to appropriate library/information services. As the population becomes increasingly varied in its linguistic, ethnic, and cultural characteristics, librarians need to review and adapt services. In this course, students choose a client group, study it, design a service, and write a grant proposal for implementing the service, with a specific institutional setting in mind (academic, public, school, hospital, prison, etc.).

Required Textbook:
