Call for Proposals

The 2018 Joint Conference of Librarians of Color, JCLC 2018 — Gathering all  Peoples: Embracing Culture & Community will take place from September 26-30, 2018 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The mission of JCLC is to advance the issues affecting librarians of color within the profession and to also explore how best to serve the incredibly diverse and changing communities that use our libraries.

We encourage you to read our Call for Proposals and submit your proposal for JCLC 2018!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 3rd Joint Conference of Librarians of Color in 2018.  We have currently closed the volunteer form but may be asking for additional volunteers in the future for committees or special projects.  Please stay tuned to your ethnic affiliate list-serv and the JCLC 2018 website for these opportunities!





First held in 2006 in Dallas, Texas, and then again in 2012 in Kansas City, Missouri, the Joint Conference of Librarians of Color brings together a diverse group of librarians, library staff, library supporters, and community participants to explore issues of diversity in libraries and how they affect the ethnic communities who use library services.  It will be held next on September 26-30, 2018, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

More updates regarding the conference and JCLC Inc. will be forthcoming via the organization’s website.  Please visit the JCLC Inc website, where donations can also be made to support JCLC’s work to advocate for and address the common needs of librarians of color.
