Description

Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada (CCSN) is a nonprofit social
services provider that serves individuals and families in need in the Las
Vegas area, including over 3,000 refugees each year. Last year, three MLIS
students from the University of Washington reached out to this organization
and helped to identify an information need for new refugees. Although local
city information for refugees is freely available online, this delivery
method is not beneficial to individuals with limited English language
proficiency or low digital literacy. In partnership with CCSN, we created a
physical informational resource guide for refugees located in Southern
Nevada, which can be updated and translated by resettlement organizations
across the country.
