Alston’s dissertation research was a mixed-method study focused on diversity residency programs in libraries, with diversity residency programs being temporary, entry-level professional librarian positions that seek candidates from traditionally underrepresented populations. Alston’s research identified factors that tended to correlate with positive residency experiences from former and then-current residents who participated in his study. Qualitative portions of Alston’s research on residencies has also shined a light on the treatment of diversity residents when serving in these roles.
