The Libraries Advisory Committee on Diversity includes both library staff and faculty and is libraries-wide in scope. The Committee is charged with providing advice on issues of diversity. The overall goal of the library diversity program is to assure that all library personnel and library users feel welcomed, valued, and respected and to assure that library personnel, services, and collections appropriately reflect the diversity of the Rutgers community and its curriculum and research interests. To accomplish this, the Committee provides advice to the University Librarian on programs or policies affecting staff development, recruitment/retention, public services, and collections. The Committee works with the library faculty standing advisory committees, other library committees, and administrative offices as appropriate to carry out its charge.
