Race, Oppression and Social Change Resource Guide

The Goodson Law Library is pleased to announce the new Race, Oppression and Social Change Resource Guide, which provides links to e-books and streaming video that are available through the Duke Libraries. Developed by Casandra Laskowski, Technology and Research Services Librarian and Lecturing Fellow, the guide includes tabs on various topics such as the history of racism and inequality in America, institutional structures that contribute to oppression, specialized topics such as the criminal justice system and healthcare, exploration of marginalized identities, guides to allyship and advocacy, and resources for educators.

This guide is accessible from the library Research Guides page. Its contents will be updated regularly, and title suggestions are welcomed at A tab of Duke Libraries Catalog Subject Headings provides access to additional resources, which can be filtered to e-resources by using the "Available Online" checkbox.

In response to increased interest in accessing these resources, the Duke University Libraries have recently purchased additional copies for several popular titles on the EBSCO e-book platform, including How to Be an Antiracist and White Fragility. Due to the continued high level of interest, readers may still encounter a wait list for certain titles. For more information about using the various e-book platforms available through Duke, please visit the Duke University Libraries eBook FAQ or Ask a Librarian.
