Kathleen de la Peña McCook, who is working with the VSU “Librarians Building Communities” program, presented the 2010 Dr. Jean E. Coleman Library Outreach Lecture as part of this year’s ALA Annual Conference in Washington D.C. In her lecture “Librarians and Human Rights” McCook explored the philosophical basis of librarians’ commitment to human rights and human development as grounded in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDG).

The Jean E. Coleman Library Outreach Lecture is sponsored by ALA’s Office of Literacy and Outreach Services (OLOS) and presented each year during the American Library Association’s Annual Conference. Dr. Coleman was the first director of OLOS, and spent her career ensuring that all citizens have access to quality library services.
