Welcome to the Together for Justice Research Guide

This guide highlights Dickinson library resources, including books, films, and databases, for expanding our understanding of social justice issues, so that we can combat discrimination in all its forms. 

This guide provides a selection of resources related to overcoming racism and antisemitism, as well other issues of importance to our community and society. You can discover more resources on the library website.  If you would like help finding additional information sources, or if you wish to recommend additions to this page, please contact a librarian for assistance.

Promoting Interfaith Understanding

Practicing Anti-Racism on Campus

Dickinson Land Acknowledgement

Dickinson College is on the unceded lands of the Susquehannock nation. We acknowledge the many Indigenous peoples that lived with these lands, as well as the thousands of Indigenous children forced into the reprogramming camp established as the Carlisle Indian Industrial School (CIIS) in 1879. The College bears responsibility for the support and recognition it provided CIIS, a federal effort to culturally assimilate and eradicate Indigenous peoples. Accordingly, this living land acknowledgement is deliberately unfinished work. It will continue as a project dedicated to helping our entire community better understand our shared past, present, and future.

About this Guide

This guide began as a continuation of a 2019 campus reading and discussion of How to Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. That event was sponsored by the English Department, the Popel Shaw Center for Race & Ethnicity, and Waidner-Spahr Library.

Since then, we have expanded the scope of this guide to address education and action in support of social justice.

This guide is maintained and updated by the Library Inclusivity Team (LIT) at Waidner-Spahr Library. LIT works collaboratively with all library staff to implement increasingly inclusive practices across library services. If you have suggestions or questions about this guide, please contact a member of LIT or email us at
