Abstract:Diversity is a major concern in the field of library and information science (LIS) because of the profession’s frequent inability to meet the demands of a multicultural society with a mono-cultural workforce. This presentation offers an opportunity to further the ongoing conversation about the development of Community Informatics (CI) at the University of Illinois and to continue to assess the role community informatics has played in encouraging diversity in the LIS field and on campus.These Power Point slides were presented at the 2010 Center on Democracy in a Multicultural Society (CDMS) Conference.
