Unintentional Recruiting for Diversity
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Library and information science literature presents several types of intentional recruitment strategies, such as scholarships and mentoring programs. In this presentation, we will introduce the topic of unintentional recruitment: unconscious strategies used by librarians and library science faculty which affect patrons’ likelihood to choose librarianship as a career choice. Unintentional recruitment strategies can be positive, inducing the patron to think of librarianship as a good career choice, or negative, inducing the patron to disregard librarianship as a career choice.
