The National Diversity in Libraries Conference (NDLC '16), co-sponsored by the UCLA Library and the Association of Research Libraries, took place on the UCLA campus on August 10 - 13, 2016. Under the theme of “Bridges to Inclusion,” NDLC ’16 endeavors to highlight issues related to diversity and inclusion that affect staff, users, and institutions in the library, archive, and museum (LAM) fields. It also aims to articulate the value of and develop strategies for diversity and inclusion in LAMs in order to improve organizational excellence and community engagement.
