Hello and welcome to the UMass Amherst Libraries Diversity and Inclusion Committee's readings and media page! This is a collection of articles, books, videos, lectures, podcasts, and more on topics that relate to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) both in and outside the library. We hope this will become a valuable resource for people who want to learn more about certain topics, share something that changed their perspective on an issue, or that others might find useful.
Please help us grow this resource. This is a living document and we welcome useful suggestions from anyone in the library or the greater community. If you would like to contribute a resource please email Jeremy or Christine.
This guide is organized by topics, but we also recognize intersectionality: that multiple factors of advantage and disadvantage overlap and intersect to shape one's social identities in empowering and/or oppressing ways. The intersectionality framework was introduced by Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw and she describes it in this video.
