Symposium on the Future of Libraries
Project Welcome (https://publish.illinois.edu/projectwelcome/) is an IMLS funded project exploring how libraries 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 bring together library workers and staff from refugee resettlement agencies to inform the library services continuum that is in development. An optional working group will follow the formal session, offering attendees time to talk about next steps and involvement in the project. This grant is a partnership with the Mortenson Center for International Library Programs and ALA's Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services, and the International Relations Office.
