WVU Libraries Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Resource Guide

Providing information on diversity, equity, and inclusion, including readings, resources, and program info. While not exhaustive, we intend this guide to be a starting point for further inquiry.

Content in Response to Current Events

The Library Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Guide currently spotlights online library and web resources related to the killing of George Floyd, including the context of anti-black violence, police brutality, protests, and activism including Black Lives Matter (BLM) and artists' responses. In addition, people of color are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and we are sharing sources about health inequity and the intersection with BLM and the current protests

Artists and writers producing work in the streets – including tags, graffiti, murals, stickers, and other installations on walls, pavement, and signs – are in a unique position to respond quickly and effectively in a moment of crisis.
