SAA and ARL Awarded IMLS Grant for Diversity Program

Historical Date: 
The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the Society of American Archivists (SAA) will develop a diversity recruitment program extending SAA’s Mosaic Scholarship program to provide 15 masters students in archival science or special collections librarianship with financial support, paid internships in libraries and archives, mentoring relationships, leadership development, and career placement assistance. The Mosaic program responds to low minority representation of the professional workforce and is modeled after other diversity recruitment efforts. The program will expand and enhance the recruitment, training, and development of library and archives professionals from traditionally underrepresented ethnic and racial minority groups within the context of large, complex research organizations.
