During the Week of June 14-18, the Division of Libraries is participating in an Inclusion, Diversity, Belonging, Equity, and Accessibility (IDBEA) Days of Learning.

We aim to take meaningful steps to eradicate racial injustice and dismantle racism:

- We have to take actions that match our words, otherwise our words are empty;
- We have to work to eradicate all structural and systemic oppression that exist at all levels in our academic disciplines.

These days provide Libraries’ employees, across our global sites, with an opportunity to make time and space to engage more deeply with inclusion, diversity, belonging, equity, and accessibility in our lives and in our work that support the Libraries’ mission of Diversity & Inclusion.

There may be some delay in service response due to the participation in the Days’ activities.

We encourage the NYU Community to join us in our Days of Learning. Please take some time to read, listen, or watch from these suggested resources:

- Division of Libraries Days of Learning (DoL DoL)
- NYU Solidarity Week LibGuide"
- NYU Office of Global Inclusion’s Anti-Racism Education Resource List (PDF)
- Division of Libraries’ IDBE Steering Committee resource list (Google Doc)
