The Division of Libraries is participating in a Day of Learning on Indigenous Peoples’ Day: Monday, October 12, 2020.
In recognition of the current moment of racial uprising and social unrest, 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.
This day provides Libraries’ employees, across our global sites, with an opportunity to provide space for engagement and reflection that support the Libraries’ mission of Diversity & Inclusion
To enable library employees to participate in the Day of Learning, the Libraries will pause two services for the day:
• Ask a Librarian
: chat reference will be offline for the day and all email inquiries will be answered on Tuesday, October 13.
• Book and resource delivery services
: we are suspending material delivery (scans, locker and home delivery) on Monday, October 12.
- Delivery services will resume on Tuesday, October 13.
- If you have questions about our services, please contact us on Tuesday, October 13.
We encourage the NYU Community to join us in our Day of Learning. Please take some time to read, listen, or watch from these suggested resources:
• NYU Reads Research Guide, Fall 2020: Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson
• NYU Solidarity Week Research Guide
• NYU Office of Global Inclusion’s Anti-Racism Education Resource List (PDF)
