The scholarship in this bibliography offers wisdom for all academic library workers about the experiences of academic librarians of color. My initial purpose in exploring the literature was to combat my own ignorance and to help me be a better colleague to non-white librarians in predominantly white academic institutions. These works also inform diversity, equity, and inclusion programming in academic libraries, especially when primarily theory-based approaches might fall flat for a given audience.
I have tried to provide links to open access full-text where possible. Where a book chapter has no open access online, I provide a link to the WorldCat record. While the list is not intended to be comprehensive, I welcome any suggestions for additional sources or open access channels.
