Access & Equity
In the wake of the racially motivated violence in Charleston, South Carolina, scholars and librarians collaborated on a bibliography to inform ongoing conversations about race relations. The vision is that by sharing knowledge in this way, new understanding, approaches and change can occur. Read this OCLC Member Story about the bibliography, watch a video with the creators, and follow the #CharlestonSyllabus hashtag on Twitter.
