This website was created for a class at the UCLA Department of Library and Information Studies. The class, IS 289: Information Services in Culturally Diverse Communities, had five purposes:
1. To explore the challenges of providing information services in a multicultural and multiracial society,
One of the assignments for the class was to "produce a tool or program that will address the information needs of your target community. It may address any aspect of information services or professional training."
I chose not to focus on one specific community, choosing instead the multicultural community as a whole for this assignment. I am fully aware that there are cultural groups that have not been included in this website--due to time constraints and lack of available information resources, I could not include everything that I wanted. To fulfill this assignment, I decided to create a website that would address two aspects of culture and health:
1. Health information geared towards specific races, ethnicities, and cultures.If you are aware of any sites that should be included, or any sites that should be removed, please feel free to e-mail me or go to my feedback page.
