Diversity: Race & Ethnicity



In this guide you will find official search terms, links, media, books, journals, and statistics to aid you in research or recreational reading. Although race and ethnicity are not so easily categorized, this guide attempts to break down these broad racial categories into smaller parts to better address the nuance of these identities. Please feel free to send suggestions! The library isn't just a resource, it's a community. We want to be inclusive as information access for ALL is our core value.


Please note that the subject headings listed on the right might use antiquated terms that need to be updated by the Library of Congress. There are thousands of subject headings and cultural changes to language occur frequently, so these terms may or may not reflect popular terminology.
