Diversity Resources Website Now Available
The Graduate Research Library is pleased to announce the creation of a library diversity resources website. This website is being developed on an iterative basis, meaning this is neither the final version nor an all-encompassing exhaustive guide to diversity resources, but we hope that it will provide you with research assistance on diversity-related topics. Special thanks to Mark Kelly, Lead Reference & Instruction Librarian, for developing this site. Videos Re-Indexed in Library Catalog
The Graduate Research Library has re-indexed videos into its catalog (see this list). This means that all 124 videos now have applicable Library of Congress subject headings describing them and summary paragraphs. Each video is broken down by chapter for quick navigation. Synchronized transcripts and subtitles are available for many of our videos, with the spoken words highlighted on a transcript as a video plays. Many videos also come with an instructor's manual.

Please note that this subscription is for current Pacifica faculty, students, and staff.
