Anti-Racism Guide: Resources for Education and Action from the UC San Diego Library

This Libguide, organized in consultation with the UC San Diego Library Diversity and Inclusion Committee with contributions from other units across the library, is by no means a definitive guide. The guide will evolve over time and The Library welcomes thoughts, suggestions and corrections.

The guide is compiled to flow from educating users to the topics of racism and anti-racism, taking a deeper dive into details and exploration of the scholarship, delivering educational resources to use in the classroom or for self-education, and then to build sustained and actionable practices for individuals and institutions.

Access the complete Anti-Racism Guide: Resources for Education and Action >>

Strategic Planning Toolkit

In the Strategic Planning Toolkit (PDF), you will find a proposed outline to guide the school, department and unit planning process.

21-Day Anti-Racism Challenge Material

Diversity scholar Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. created the 21-Day Challenge concept to promote deeper understandings of race, power, privilege, supremacy and oppression.
