An awakening with regional archivists
- special collections,
- professional development
An early career librarian of color reflects upon her attendance at a regional conference and how it related to her first rotation as part of a Diversity Residency Program at a large predominately white institution in the Deep South. She examines how the lack of diverse representation within librarianship has continually contributed to her own crisis of professional identity and how the residency program has influenced managing this crisis.
