Nora J. Bird

The UNCG LIS Department is excited to announce that Dr. Nora Bird was awarded a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as a part of the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program.  

The Academic and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) Scholars: New Americans for Community College Librarianship project seeks to increase the number of immigrants and refugees in community college librarianship. The project includes a recruitment drive, a targeted and focused curriculum that emphasizes multicultural, multilingual, and community engaged librarianship, and a proven practicum model, the Real Learning Connections. The project will result in a sustainable curriculum as well as a multilingual and multicultural cadre of 10 librarians, ready to serve diverse community college students, and ready to work in community college library environments.
