Information underlies virtually every interaction, is a vital social and political equalizer, and is a unifying thread throughout all human actions. Given the importance of equal access to information by all members of society, the study of information must be framed in the most inclusive terms possible, including issues of socio-economic status, education, geography, language, literacy, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, and national origin. This course is designed to prepare future information professionals to develop and provide inclusive services to diverse and underrepresented populations, and to analyze and evaluate services to ensure equality of access to information in a range of institutional settings.
