This new edition of Celebrating Diversity: A Legacy of Minority Leadership in the American Association of Law Libraries builds upon the first edition by providing updated information and new insights into diversity in law librarianship. New and future leaders in AALL are identified and profiled, demonstrating the growth of diverse law library professionals in the field. Survey data gathered from minority members provide a snapshot of the state of diversity in AALL. New data from this second survey is compared with data from a previous survey published in the first edition.
The profiles of minority librarians are arranged in four parts. Part I, “Legacy of Leadership” includes profiles of the leading pioneers among minority law librarians. Part II, “The Enduring Legacy: Leaders and Mentors” highlights veteran leaders who have demonstrated a record of sustained leadership that includes contributions to AALL and to the professional development of newer law librarians. Part III, “Leaders of Today” includes profiles of a select number of current minority law librarians who have been in the profession ten or more years and have taken an active leadership role in AALL. Part IV, “Leaders of Tomorrow” features newer law librarians with under ten years of experience, and presents their unique experiences with, and perspectives on, diversity in AALL and the profession.
Like the first one, this new edition furthers AALL's core purpose and organizational values to advance the profession of law librarianship. Just as importantly, it contributes to the history of diversity in the profession by documenting the contributions of minority law librarians to AALL and law librarianship.
