This guide offers self reflection and education around issues of racism, becoming antiracist, and advocating for racial justice for our university community and beyond. The guide further highlights the efforts at Lovejoy Library.
In response to an institutional commitment and local and national events we were moved to start the process of dismantling racial and social injustices as large-scale protest movements against police brutality and systemic racism occurred. In this call to action, a library Diversity and Inclusion Committer was formed. Our committee created an anti-racism statement. We have only begun our work which will also include a continuous modification of this research guide in response to evolving anti-racism issues and community needs.
