UC Libraries received a grant from the Provost’s Office to promote and celebrate diversity throughout the university community. Entitled “Bridges to Diversity and Inclusion” this initiative will provide a school year filled with events, programs and exhibits designed to celebrate diversity on the UC campus and beyond.
A new exhibit on the fourth floor of Langsam Library highlights “Bridges to Diversity and Inclusion” with information on ways that people can participate in the initiative and a showcase of library resources that celebrate and explore all areas of diversity.
Included in the exhibit are books, databases, e-resources and films from the collections of UC Libraries. A bibliography and list of events is available in print at the exhibit and online. More resources on diversity can be found in this online list – UC Libraries Diversity Resources.
Other “Bridges to Diversity and Inclusion” events include:
- 25th Anniversary of the ADA display in Langsam Library and the Henry R. Winkler Center for the History of the Health Professions
- Book reads/book clubs
- Coming Together to Give Thanks celebration: Thursday, November 12 3:30pm-5:30pm, Langsam Library
