About book access

Many of our ebooks have a limited number of simultaneous users.  You can usually download several chapters for offline reading, freeing up a license for a popular book.  If you are turned away from a title several times, please contact Margy Lindem.  

More information on using ebooks is available here.

To request a print book to be delivered to a particular library for pickup, on the Franklin record for the book click GET IT, and log in.  Choose GET IT again and choose a copy to be delivered and the library where you will pick up the copy.  If no copies are available, choose one anyway and you'll be directed to get a copy through Interlibrary Loan.

Overview

The selected readings are to supplement and encourage further discovery on topics covered in the Penn Experience: Racism, Reconciliation and Engagement course and Penn Vet Diversity Equity Lecture Series. Access is limited to the books so please follow guidance provided by the library if you encounter any access issues. These are not required or assigned readings and it is not our expectation to overwhelm anyone with a sense of urgency. We hope you will take your time and read these books at your leisure. However, there will be opportunities throughout your progression as students, faculty and staff to discuss the themes in these books and the contributions to these discussions by those who have read any of these books will be vital.
