Milner Library now offers the first of its kind topical library guide on systemic racism. Libraries use guides to curate important resources for subjects all in one place. Topical guides are those that are devoted to specific topics like Fake News, as an example. Milner now hosts a topical guide centering systemic racism in a general sense of the definition and expands to include resources in varying subjects, as well as ways to encourage discussion, engagement, and learning in the classroom. The guide is open for viewing, but some resources will be accessible only to ISU-credentialed patrons/users.
The systemic racism guide is organized by material type and subtopic and includes resources and formats of variable time commitments. Whether you’re new to these issues and want a quick overview of the major ideas, or you need resources for an in-depth class project, Milner’s systemic racism guide is here to help!
Just as the ideas around systemic racism are ever-expanding, this topic guide will also continue to grow. Milner employees continue to add new resources to the guide, but also encouraging the campus community to send in their recommendations as well. A feedback form is included on the guide’s homepage. Please use this form to share any input or suggestions related to the guide.
