Synergy Issue 11, September 2014

This issue of Synergy features three brief articles on a range of topics around trends in the library and archival profession. Camille Salas reflects on a service-learning project that was implemented as a product of formal library and information science coursework on universal design, and the nexus with the “makerspace” movement in libraries. Harrison Inefuku provides an update about the ARL/Society of American Archivists (SAA) Mosaic Program, a collaborative diversity recruitment program entering its second year. The final article features three ARL/Music Library Association (MLA) Diversity and Inclusion Initiative (DII) fellows—Joy Doan, Rahni Kennedy, and Patrick Sifuentes—in a virtual fireside chat as they reflect on their experiences from the past year of their fellowships and the DII program.
