BUILDING A MULTICULTURAL
by Sharon Gray and Teresa Abaid
This paper introduces a philosophical framework for cultural diversity
in academic and public library collections followed by a practical approach to
collection development for library media collections. It investigates issues related to identifying, evaluating, and acquiring audiovisual resources that
accurately portray people from a variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds. Practical
information such as sources for selection, sources of reviews, promotion of
multicultural collections, current awareness strategies for identifying new
resources, and listings of relevant catalogs and Web sites are discussed.
