Survey DEADLINE OCTOBER 17, 2008


The ALA Office for Literacy and Outreach Services (OLOS), the American 
Indian Library Association (AILA), and the National Institutes of Tribal 
Archives, Libraries, and Museums are seeking information on 
multicultural services offered by all types of libraries.


The purposes of this survey are:

1)      To identify the current status of culturally responsive services 
in libraries;

2)      To identify and study issues and challenges confronting the 
development of culturally appropriate services to diverse audiences;  

3)      To collect and disseminate information on successful programs

4)      To make recommendations on possible courses of action to 
facilitate increased multicultural library services.

This survey is intended to be a quick assessment of services, and so 
your IMMEDIATE response is appreciated.


The deadline for responses is *_October 17, 2008_*, so PLEASE COMPLETE 
THE SURVEY AT YOUR EARLIEST CONVENIENCE. The questions are designed for 
easy responses. Entries received after December 17th will not be 
calculated. The resulting data will be posted mid-December 2008 at 
www.ala.org/olos <http://www.ala.org/olos>.


Here is the link to the survey: 


It will also be available as a direct link from the OLOS home page at 
www.ala.org/olos <http://www.ala.org/olos>


Also, please disseminate to library colleagues whose interest or 
activities would benefit the survey and for whom the survey's resulting 
information may impact services.

Thank you in advance for your participation!
