Library Resources

In an effort to expand the systemwide digital library collections in support of the Ethnic Studies curriculum, the Chancellor’s Office has licensed a series of collections that include magazines and newspapers as well as textbooks and biographies. To access these resources, log in using your CalState credentials.

The Council of Library Deans voted to recommend these resources curated by the systemwide librarians’ Shared Resources Digital Content Committee. Ethnic Studies faculty members were consulted via their library affiliations.
