As the United States becomes more diverse in language and culture, libraries and librarians must rethink our services to fit the cultural needs of these users. Finding appropriate language-based resources, integrating religious beliefs and patient care, and learning cultural norms are part of the expanded service we must all provide.
Our speaker will inform us about experiences delivering culturally responsive health care, followed by contributed papers sharing how services expanded to meet the multicultural and multilingual needs of diverse populations.
