Our Social Justice Collection has launched!


As announced in a statement from Interim Dean Patrick McCarthy, the Library has established a Social Justice Collection of materials that support research and inquiry into issues of social justice in America.

You'll see some books that have been getting a lot of buzz recently, 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 Paul Butler's Chokehold: Policing Black Men and Joe R. Feagin's Racist America: Roots, Current Realities, and Future Reparations.

Our initial collection of books are mostly available 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. Print books can be requested through our forthcoming "Domeside Pickup" service.

We'll be adding to the collection on a regular basis, so check back to see the latest titles!
