We’re proud to announce that a number of our own UHM LIS community are featured in the Diversity & Reading special issue of The International Journal of Information, Diversity & Inclusion (Vol. 3, No. 2, April 2019). Dr. Vanessa Irvin was the guest editor for this special issue, which features a paper by recent UHM LIS graduate Valerie Shaindlin on reading museum exhibits in culture-based contexts.

Also featured is a paper by Hamilton Library’s Filipino Studies Librarian, Elena Clariza. Her beautifully illustrated article is about sacred body text in indigenous culture. Other topics in this issue include reading groups in immigrant communities, data analysis of multicultural literature, and censorship of national bestselling diverse literature.
