NJ Statewide Diversity Resources

The purpose of NJ Statewide Diversity Resources Online is to provide a dynamic place where libraries can find and share diversity resources and programs. We are offering a one-stop shop for issues pertaining to diversity in our professional and personal lives, as well as the daily lives of the people in our communities. Active participation of the library community will enhance our services and enrich our workforce. All library staff of the New Jersey library community are encouraged to contribute content.

Do-Diversity

Goals:

  • Collaborate with New Jersey libraries to provide services, programs and develop partnerships and collections to serve their diverse communities
  • Share diversity resources online
  • Showcase the libraries of NJ
