American Libraries

  • 23 July, 2017

Libraries are not only repositories of books and databases; they serve as community centers for diverse populations, information hubs for local entrepreneurs and immigrants, catalysts for civic education and engagement and as champions for youth and free speech.  This project will explore the many roles and functions of libraries and information specialists in American society.  Participants will examine the wide variety of U.S. public, private and academic libraries, the enrichment programs they devise for their diverse patrons, and their use of information technology.
