NVC Library Features Black Lives Matter LibGuide

Northwest Vista College Library recently created a Black Lives Matter LibGuide to help students and faculty inform themselves on the recent events and unrest in our country.

The recent tragedies involving George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others have made this already tumultuous year even more heartbreaking. The NVC library wants students to know that Black Lives Matter. They matter because they are Americans, mothers, fathers, children, and students. They deserve to be fought for, to be valued, to take space, and to exist in peace. For too long systemic racism has wreaked havoc on people of color.

The NVC library is providing the tools to help students and faculty combat racism and fight for justice. A vital step in the right direction is to understand the perspectives of others whose experiences are different from our own. The library has a depository of resources on the black experience and the culture of white supremacy. The library is here to support the campus with scholarly records that support our diverse community and their information needs. We have put together some resources to help support faculty efforts to engage and integrate these issues into their curriculums. Our aim is to provide sources that will broaden the conversation, inspire critical thinking, and encourage a willingness to learn more. This guide is a work in progress and is intended to serve as a starting point for students and faculty.
