Library Instruction for Diverse Populations

The USA's Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL)Instruction Section (IS) Instruction for Diverse Populations (IDP) Committee has announced the new versions of their Multilingual Glossary and Library Instruction for Diverse Populations Bibliography. The Glossary has "85 commonly used library terms" in English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French and Spanish. The Bibliography mostly lists articles, with full abstracts/annotations. There is a focus on groups of particular interest to the USA (e.g. African American) but also some sections of more international interest (e.g. students with disabilities). The IDP website is at http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/
