Additional Resources on Race

Other Resources to Support Learning and Engagement


While we in the Library encourage academic research and scholarly investigation, we also realize discussions on topics like race require broader education. The Association of Research Libraries reminds us that authority is both constructed and contextual, and that "are evaluated based on the information need and the context in which the information will be used." This page contains a range of resources for self-care and advocacy. These resources are publicly available on the internet and are only a small selection of what is available. They come from a variety of different perspectives and may not all resonate with each reader. 

Most importantly, if you are struggling with mental health and feelings of depression, hopelessness, and anxiety, please reach out to someone. Some available resources follow: 

CAPS (Counseling and Psychological Services)
Community Counseling Center 
Region 8 Crisis Services
National Suicide Prevention Hotline - 1-800-273-8255

If you are affiliated with FGCU (student, staff, faculty) and need to talk about discrimination or harassment, please reach out to the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance.
