Diversity & Inclusion at University Libraries: Library Resources

Belk Libraries Resources

The Diversity Timeline covers events relating to diversity in the history of Appalachian State University. The timeline covers the period from 1899 to 2016.

The Belk library provides access to a vast collection of online resources in subject areas including but not limited to: African Studies, Anthropology, Global Studies, Native American Studies, and Religion.

The committee's mission is to support and foster a respectful, tolerant and inclusive educational and social learning environment and experiences for patrons and library personnel through services, collections, teaching, learning, and technology.

A collection of resources for those learning a new language or needing help with translation and grammar. Also lists resources for media, film, music, and literature in all languages.

Special Collections is home to books, manuscripts, and artifacts about the Appalachian region, the University's history, stock car racing, and British history, as well as many other topics.

Librarian Organizational Resources

The ALA Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services supports library and information science workers in creating responsible and all-inclusive spaces that serve and represent the entire community. To accomplish this, we decenter power and privilege by facilitating conversations around access and identity as they impact the profession and those we serve. We use a social justice framework to inform library and information science workers' development of resources. We strive to create an association culture where these concerns are incorporated into everybody's everyday work.

Round Table for Ethnic Minority Concerns (REMCo) is a round table for North Carolina Library Association that serves as a voice for ethnic and minority members. REMCo strives to improve service to and in some cases even initiate service for the ethnic communities that we all serve. It is overseen by the action of an Executive Board elected to two-year terms.
