Diversity by Design wins David Cohen/EMIERT Multicultural Award

Congratulations to Keren Dali (School of Library and Information Studies, University of Alberta) and Nadia Caidi (Faculty of Information, University of Toronto) on receiving the 2018 Ethnic and Multicultural Information Exchange Round Table (EMIERT) David Cohen/EMIERT Multicultural Award for their Library Quarterly article entitled Diversity by Design. The article introduces the concept of diversity by design and demonstrates that "diversity, broadly conceived, is foundational to LIS and that discounting or underappreciating its pivotal function may have a disintegrating effect on our practice, scholarship, and education." Read the full press release here.

ALA's David Cohen/EMIERT Multicultural Award recognizes recent articles that include significant new research related to the understanding and promotion of multiculturalism in libraries in North America. Works published within the last two years preceding the award application deadline are eligible to receive the award.
