Library Service to Underserved Children and Their Caregivers Committee: Lighting the Way: Providing Timely Resources for Underserved Populations

Jaime Eastman, J. Joseph Prince

Abstract


Libraries provide access to valuable information, resources, and services. Yet, despite our best efforts, some populations remain overlooked or underserved.

For libraries, these patrons struggle with access to, use of, or representation in our collections, programs, and services. These barriers may result from language, financial status, race, gender, sexual orientation, or specific skills and abilities. As community and cultural institutions, we must not provide any patron with less than adequate—or better yet, exemplary—service.
