The Gordon Library and Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Education (ODIME) have designed this guide to provide resources on the topics of diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging.
WPI's Values: We treat others with dignity at all times. We embrace expertise, including that earned through both education and lived experience. As global citizens, we respect our natural environment and acknowledge the responsibility we all have to develop and disseminate sustainable stewardship practices for our planet. We are committed to building a workplace and a campus where all can contribute, where all voices are valued, and where we engage and communicate with care and professionalism.
A note about searching for DEIB materials:
Academic libraries, such as Gordon Library, use the Library of Congress Classification system to organize books by subject which in turn determine where the book is found on a shelf if it is a print book.
These "subject headings," as they are technically called, often use outdated or antiquated terms that today may be considered offensive by members of the communities they are meant to represent. Unfortunately, sometimes we may still need to use these terms to find the relevant materials we are looking for.
This service is staffed by WPI librarians and staff. If the chat is not available, please feel free to email us at email@example.com or you can make an appointment with a librarian at http://wpi.libcal.com/appointments/
