Booklist Review

This monograph republication of an issue of the Journal of Library Administration first defines diversity, inclusively and specifically, and proceeds to such topics as management after the demise of affirmative action, enhancing workplace diversity, diversity in small liberal arts colleges, the need for national initiatives to increase diversity in the library field, higher education's approach to teaching about diversity, the reaction to diversity outside the U.S., and barriers to diversity.
