University Libraries Diversity Fund

Last month, the UNCG University Libraries gathered to celebrate Gerald Holmes, Reference Librarian and Diversity Coordinator, for being named the American Library Association Achievement in Library Diversity Research Honoree for 2014.  The University is further honoring Gerald by establishing the University Libraries Diversity Fund.  This restricted fund will be used to help with the mentorship and professional development of our diversity librarian residents.  If you are interested in donating to the University Libraries Diversity Fund, you can donate online here or stop by the University Libraries Administration Office for a paper form.
