Diversity in the Library Collection

The Library is undertaking a project to bring more diversity to our collection and we need your help.

We welcome suggestions of items for purchase that will help us develop our collection to be more inclusive of any marginalized community, whether they be associated with race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, physical ability, socioeconomic class, or any other underrepresented group. We are looking for diversity in topics and in voices.

Please let us know if the item you’re requesting is for a course or if you have another use in mind. Please submit your suggestions and purchases will be made within the allocated budget.

  • Interlibrary Loan: https://1866.account.worldcat.org/profile/ - If you can't find the resources you are looking for, you can request via Interlibrary Loan and we will do our best to find the item you need in a format that works for you. Interlibrary loan is available to current students, faculty, and staff only. New requests for physical books will be stored in our system, but at this time most likely they will not be filled. Requests for electronic journal articles will be processed, but there may be long delays. This is rapidly changing as the nation’s libraries adjust, we will post updates here as we know more.
