New Anti-Racism Toolkit Available

The Library’s new Anti-Racism Toolkit is a compilation of books, courses, articles, and other resources that can serve as a launch point for further study and information for discussions about race and inclusion in our society. Georgetown University librarians created the toolkit in the wake of the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and far too many others.

In addition to library and online materials, the toolkit includes organizations at Georgetown, guidance for parents about discussing race with their children, and practical actions people can take to fight racism. A glossary defines terms users may come across.

The toolkit is a living document and will continue to be updated.
