“Diversity in Libraries: Making It Real” was the topic and the objective of the 2004 National Diversity in Libraries Conference. Intentionally designed to focus on pragmatic, real-world approaches to fostering diversity, the gathering took place May 4-5 at the brand new Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia. A record 300 librarians from across the country – and a few from other nations – responded to the call and came together for two days of learning and sharing experiences about this important issue. Sponsors for the fourth national diversity conference included the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL), the Southeastern Library Network (SOLINET), the HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) Library Alliance, and the Association of Research Libraries (ARL).
