Project Welcome (https://publish.illinois.edu/projectwelcome/), an IMLS-funded planning grant, has completed its work to learn and articulate ways libraries can address the information needs of refugees and asylum seekers in their resettlement and integration process. The session will present the recommendations, action plan and guide, developed by the Mortenson Center for International Library Programs in partnership with ALA’s Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services, and the International Relations Office, followed by a discussion on how libraries can adopt ways to support the successful resettlement and integration of refugees into their communities, and partner with refugee resettlement agencies and others in this endeavor.
