New Additions to our Social Justice Collection!
In June 2020, the Library established a Social Justice Collection of materials that support research and inquiry into issues of social justice in America.
Here are some of the books we've recently added to the Collection (as of February 2022):
Minority leader : how to lead from the outside and make real change by Stacey Abrams
Unsustainable inequalities : social justice and the environment by Lucas Chancel
Invisible women : data bias in a world designed for men by Caroline Criado Perez
From here to equality : reparations for Black Americans in the twenty-first century by William A. Darity Jr. and A. Kirsten Mullen
You'll also see books that continue to receive a lot of buzz, such as Robin DiAngelo's White Fragility and Ibram X. Kendi's How to be an Antiracist. Plus other books that might be less well-known, but are also important and powerful, such as Shadows of doubt : stereotypes, crime, and the pursuit of justice by Brendan O'Flaherty and Rajiv Sethi and Biased : uncovering the hidden prejudice that shapes what we see, think, and do by Jennifer L. Eberhardt
We are focusing on purchasing books in e-format to maximize accessibility, with some titles in print where e-format does not exist. They can be accessed through our OneSearch system.
We'll continue to add to the collection on a regular basis, so check back to see the latest titles!
