“How can libraries better serve refugees and asylum seekers?” In the past year the Mortenson Center for International Library Programs in partnership with ALA has been working on the IMLS-funded “Project Welcome” planning grant. We have been learning how libraries are and can address the information needs of refugees and asylum seekers in order to support and empower them in their resettlement and integration process. This session will present the work of the project and engage audience feedback on the library services continuum that is in development.
