Opening Day 2020 Community Read: Community Read


Opening Day: Community Read

In this guide, you will find links to the selected chapters for each of the Community Read choices, as well as a link to the full eBook from The Library.

A note about the eBooks - "Small Teaching Online" can have unlimited users and readers will be able to download as much as 60 pages, if you'd prefer to read off-line.

The eBooks for "White Fragility" and "How to be an Antiracist" have a limit to the number of users that can read them concurrently (5 users for each). Downloading pages is also restricted for both eBooks. In order for more patrons to have access to these eBooks, we recommend that users close out the browser window/tab when they are finished reading a portion of the book, which will "return" the book (like returning a book to the library so that other patrons can read it next).

For any faculty that are interested in having the library staff create a Research Guide for their classes, please reach out to Stacey Snyder. We are flexible in designing guides to best fit your course or event, from serving as an introduction to conducting research to acting as a convenient location to host links to your resources, in one place.
