Albertsons Library’s ebook collection on racial justice topics has been expanded thanks to a combined effort across library units and recommendations from Donna Llewellyn’s “Ways to Show up for Racial Justice” document. Our new titles include: So You Want to Talk About Race, Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work for Racial Justice and The New Jim Crow among others. Other important resources are now available to the Boise State community through the library’s subscription to the Black Studies Center database. From their website, “Black Studies Center is a fully cross-searchable gateway to Black Studies including scholarly essays, recent periodicals, historical newspaper articles, reference books, and much more. It combines essential resources for research and teaching in Black Studies, including The Schomburg Studies on the Black Experience, Index to Black Periodicals Full Text, Black Literature Index, and the Chicago Defender historical newspaper from 1912-1975.” The library will subscribe to the Black Studies Center for 1 year and will assess usage at the end of the year to see about re-subscribing.
