Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Arkansas Libraries

This library guide aims to provide diversity resources and services to students, faculty, and library staff.

Being an Ally

Do you want to be an ally but have a hard time figuring out where to start? Luckily, there are so many resources out there to get started. Robin DiAngelo, diversity consultant and author, spoke to the American Libraries Association recently on counterproductive reactions to assumptions about race and inequality. These videos and her book are excellent places to start your research.
