Some more information on iDiversity: 

iDiversity is open to all graduate students in the iSchool. Our mission is to promote awareness of inclusivity, diversity, and accessibility within the information professions. This takes the form of workshops, reading groups, community projects, and fundraisers/drives. Students interested in social justice and activism are encouraged to join us. If you are an online student or can’t make our in-person meetings for whatever reason, you are still more than welcome to join us–we have several projects that can be completed entirely online, and we are happy to arrange virtual meetings via google hangout or skype.

For the profession: iDiversity envisions a world where information spaces reflect the global
community and a level playing field; information is equitably and inclusively accessible;
research contributes new modes of access and representation for underserved populations; and diversity becomes an integrated part of our consciousness as information professionals through exploration, education, and mentoring.

    Hello. I see that you don’t update your site too often. I
    know that writing posts is boring and time consuming.
    But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to create
    new posts using existing content (from article directories or other blogs from your niche)?
    And it does it very well. The new posts are unique and pass the copyscape test.
