Summer 2014 Western Libraries presented an internal event titled, “Understanding the 21st Century Library Patron.” Library personnel examined changing demographics of the United States in conjunction with the ACRL 2012 Diversity Standards for Cultural Competence. The enthusiastic response to this event prompted the Diversity Committee of Western Libraries to create a series, “Conversations about Cultural Competence.”

This program is an overview of the event, and efforts to continue the conversation throughout the library. Attendees will receive workshop materials and additional resources. Although this event was hosted at an academic library, many concepts and tools apply to any library setting.
