Abstract

Supporting Native Voices, Cultures and Stories Through Multicultural Programming, and Community and Campus Engagement at Fresno State

From the Western Mono and Yokuts of California’s Central Valley, this paper offers a case study on how academic librarians developed student collaboration and community engagement programs to highlight and support issues concerning cultures of Native Americans around California State University, Fresno. This type of programming promotes diversity and inclusivity across the campus and enhances lifelong learning opportunities for community members to experience how the academic library can shape and build programming opportunities in multiculturalism. Using the case study from the Henry Madden Library at California State University, Fresno, the paper explores how the Library Diversity Committee from this university collaborated to create a variety of academic outreach activities, exhibits, and resources to encourage learning and understanding of indigenous cultures in multidisciplinary studies: health, language, history, art, and cultural experiences in Fall 2016.
