The purpose of this seminar is to explore an important topic in library and information studies in depth — in all its intertwined historical, cultural, philosophical, and political aspects — through a graduate reading/discussion seminar. The topic varies each time the course is taught; this time around, we will focus on "libraries and community"
Adkins and Espinal say, "The ALA Spectrum Scholarships began in 1997 with an initial funding base of $1.5 million. The funds were used to support both scholarships and programs. Spectrum scholars are chosen from the four 'protected minority' categories recognized by the U.S. Equal Opportunity Act: African American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian American, and Native American" (52-53). Does anyone know the specific law that Adkins and Espinal refer to as "U.S. Equal Opportunity Act?" In my searching, I cannot find such an Act.
