Focusing on promoting Spanish-language and Latino-oriented services and resources in libraries, this selection of 20 papers was compiled at the Second REFORMA National Conference by experts in the field. The work covers a wide range of thought-provoking ideas, issues in Latino library services, leadership, practical applications, programs, and bibliographical resources. Great for librarians, library staff, and managers who have an obligation to provide quality library services to the U.S. Latino community.
For the first time, an authoritative compendium of collective thought and experience has been created to form a powerful standard for Spanish-language-oriented library services. This selection of 20 papers is the one resource to turn to when it comes to establishing or revising your current library policies and collection development guidelines as well as creating an empowering vision for the future. An indispensable tool for librarians, library staff, faculty and students of library science, and everyone who has an obligation to provide quality library services to speakers of Spanish!
