The UCSF Library is committed to building a diverse and inclusive Library as a means of promoting health equality and counteracting historic and current systems of oppression.

This guide is an overview of the anti-racist books and articles in the UCSF Library's collections, and is intended to support self-education for the UCSF community. This guide is by no means an exhaustive list of anti-racism resources, nor does it capture all of the many facets of the larger conversations about these issues. We hope this will inspire you to read, learn, and act.

We welcome and greatly appreciate any feedback and suggestions for the guide, particularly from the perspectives and experiences of those who identify as members of marginalized groups.
