This guide includes recommended resources for learning about anti-racism principles and issues related to racial justice, including books, web resources, and videos and podcasts. The Fulton Library is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment, emphasizing UVU President Tuminez's invitation to "Come as you are—UVU has a place for you." We hope this guide will serve as a tool to help our UVU community learn, reflect, and grow.
This guide is not a comprehensive list, and it is a work in progress. If you'd like assistance finding more resources, please ask a librarian—we're happy to help! We also welcome suggestions for additional resources to include in this guide or to purchase for the library's collections. To make a suggestion, fill out a Suggestions for Purchase form.
