Yo Soy Colorado: Three Collaborative Hispanic Cultural Heritage Initiatives, Beverly B. Allen, Dana Echohawk, Rhonda Gonzales, Fawn-Amber Montoya, Mary M. Somerville

Collaborative Librarianship

Collaborative activities that reflect ‘ethnicity as provenance’ benefit from collaborative, interdependent relationships among archives, classroom, and community. Examples from Center for Colorado & the West at Auraria Library (University of Colorado Denver) and the Southern Colorado Ethnic Heritage and Diversity Archives and the Voices of Protest Oral History Project (Colorado State University-Pueblo) illustrate collection development practices that advance joint ownership of archival materials by the archives and the originating cultural population. Concluding reflections offer transferable principles for working collaboratively with cultural communities on creation, identification, interpretation, and preservation of photographs, videos, documents, oral histories and ephemeral material reflective of culture, achievements ...

Reading Materials And Reading Trends Of Youth Incarcerated In Mississippi’S State-Run Training School, Rodney M. Ashmore 2016 The University of Southern Mississippi

Reading Materials And Reading Trends Of Youth Incarcerated In Mississippi’S State-Run Training School, Rodney M. Ashmore

SLIS Connecting

While MS Code 43-21-321(5)(i) requires juvenile detention centers to make reading materials available to delinquents, it fails to define specifics about the types of reading materials to which youth are to have access. Likewise, while the Robertson and Dunaway (2006) report identified facilities that provided materials and levels of access, it fell short of providing specific information on the reading materials available in the juvenile detention centers because it was not within the scope of the report. Thus, there is no clear picture of what materials delinquents have access to or read when they are placed in a ...

It will also seek to reveal whether a correlation exists between the presence of a young adult librarian and the state of a library's young adult services, as well as whether a correlation exists between the ...

You’ll receive many hugs, have an incredible impact on the growing literacy development of small minds, and have as many books as you can read… children’s books are the best books, of course! Some of the main differences come into play when considering required education and subsequent pay, the structure of programming and scheduling, and the responsibilities and additional duties of both.
