Diversifying your Course Materials: Library Resources

Partner with the Library

The University of St. Thomas Libraries are here to partner with you in this work.  Our collections are built to support the curriculum of the University.  As you consider diversifying your course readings, please let us know what we can add to our collection to support you!  

Subject Librarians

Our Subject Liaison Librarians work with academic departments to make the best use of information sources.  We are not experts in your course content, but we are experts in finding information sources in your discipline.  Contact your Liaison to talk about the resources you're looking for.

This list points to some of our academic databases that have content from underrepresented groups or locations.  This does not represent the extent of our collections.  You may want to browse our full list of databases to find sources in a specific area.  

Databases that offer multiple points of view

These databases are designed to offer multiple perspectives and points of view around specific topics.  They can be good for identifying additional points of view that you may want to consider adding to a course.

Encyclopedias and other Reference Sources

Music and Media collections
