Anti-Racism Toolkit Updates

The Library has reorganized the Anti-Racism Toolkit to make it more useful for researchers. The toolkit is now organized topically, instead of by format, to make it easier for users to find information on specific subjects. It includes subjects such as civil rights, criminal justice, systemic racism in education, and medicine, as well as links to general interest books, guides at other universities, and key research databases.

The Library’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee maintains the Anti-Racism Toolkit. The committee’s charge is to ensure the Library is a welcoming place for all staff and patrons. The committee has also coordinated staff training sessions, built campus partnerships, and is actively acquiring library materials on diversity, equity, and inclusion and racial justice.
