There isn't to my knowledge; I don't know that it would be necessary. I think all students read the same joblists. 

One venue I'd suggest is the jESSE listserv (http://web.utk.edu/~gwhitney/jesse.html) ; most LIS faculty subscribe, and they would then forward the announcement to their schools.  I know that I will. I have a student in advanced cataloging right now who would fit the bill, if she's interested in moving to Ohio.

You could also send the announcement to every LIS program directly, maybe to the faculty member who teaches cataloging.

Subject: [eduCAT] Diversity Resident Catalog Librarian

I have the potential opportunity to create a resident librarian position in technical services. This would be a 2 year residency for a newly-minted MLS or MLIS interested in learning how to catalog maps. We can start with someone who has had a course in cataloging, and can even take someone who has no experience. (Imagine that - an opportunity to get that mythical 2 years of experience!)

This a diversity position. To have this position approved we will agree to attract and hire an African-American, a Latino or a Native American cataloger. I am excited to be provided with an opportunity to diversify our profession.

I'm stumped because I don't know how to go about attracting diversity students who will be graduating shortly (by the fall?). Is there a national distribution list for diversity library jobs? Do library schools communicate with each other regarding diversity positions? I am familiar with how technical services positions are communicated and will use those methods but I don't know how connected diversity library school students are to these discussion lists.

This is all still in the nebulous planning stage - and of course I'm a cataloger so I'm all about the process of HOW I will do this. ;-)

Thanks for any input.
