Records of a federally-funded program sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) which provided inner city minorities with professional training in librarianship. Institute Director Laurence L. Sherrill created or compiled the records, which include his general files containing correspondence, memos, and newsletters concerning curriculum development, funding, staffing, and workshops. The collection also contains numerous evaluation, funding, and planning reports, and some information on the lawsuit filed by five participants against the institute and SLIS concerning their ineligibility for taking regular SLIS courses.
