One concurrent trend in both library science and education is promoting diversity in literature. This review of literature attempts to define and clarify the meaning of diversity in the context of young adult (YA) fiction and how to promote diversity in a school library or classroom. The literature review highlights and describes areas of diversity in both literature content and various book formats. The research outlines how educators use diversity awareness to benefit learners and briefly explore ways in which promoting diversity aids in both reading and learning. This research paper includes a bibliography of available resources for promoting diversity awareness and locating advocates.
