Cultural Diversity Resources Available On Colorado Web Site 
Visit Us at http://project.aclin.org/diversity/

Teachers, children, parents, an librarians, as well as the public, now have a new web site with resources on cultural diversity. The Diversity Tool Kit includes a cultural events calendar, twelve monthly bookmarks, and a searchable bibliography. Highlights include:

A calendar describing significant cultural events, holidays and notable birthdays. The calendar is available in both a visual and text-only format.

A bibliography listing ethnic-related resources in print, audio-visual and electronic formats, as well as links to other web sites. Included are resources for children and adults.

Monthly bookmarks listing ethnic events and recommended book titles. The set of 12 bookmarks is available in Print Download Format and can be downloaded for reproduction and distributed.

The free service is part of the Colorado State Library & Adult Education Office's ACLIN (Access Colorado Library & Information Network) system, which has been named as one of the "100 Great Colorado Web Sites." The Diversity Tool Kit provides information on four major ethnic groups: African Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans, and Hispanics.

The contents of the Diversity Tool Kit were developed with the aid of a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services with Library Service and Technology Act funds, administered by the Colorado Department of Education, Colorado State Library, 1998-99. Project co-directors are Eveline Yang (Auraria Library) and Susan Kotarba (Denver Public Library).

Established in 1992 by the Colorado State Library, ACLIN is a cooperative project of Colorado libraries. ACLIN provides statewide access to more than 230 library catalogs and information resources on business, health, government, the arts and more. The Diversity Tool Kit can be accessed at (HYPERLINK http://projects.aclin.org/diversity) or link to it from the ACLIN hompage at (HYPERLINK http://www.aclin.org) under "Education and Literacy."
