Albertsons Library’s ebook collection on racial justice topics has expanded thanks to a combined effort across library units and recommendations from “Ways to Show up for Racial Justice,” a listing compiled by Donna Llewellyn, executive director of STEM and diversity initiatives.
The library’s 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 resources are available to the Boise State community through the library’s subscription to the Black Studies Center database. The Black Studies Center is a 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 one year and will assess usage at the end of the year.
