Abstract

This article addresses workplace culture in academic libraries as an aspect of organizational success in achieving on-the-job diversity. It introduces a conceptual framework in the form of selected indicators as measurements of cultural integration in the workplace. Characteristics of organizational cultural health are also identified in order to direct an organization toward greater inclusiveness. The emphasis is on academic libraries, but the concept and content are applicable to information centers and libraries of all types.
