The Library aspires to be an organization that embraces diversity in all of its forms while supporting the research and learning functions of the Institute. To that end, we recommit ourselves to providing access to popular and academic materials centered on social justice, racial and ethnic histories in the United States, and LGBTQ+ stories, among other interconnected issues. We will also provide fictive works created by or concerning people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and displaced or marginalized people. Popular books, movies, and music are windows into the full reality of the multicultural world and mirrors of an individual's experience. It is our duty to furnish both.
