Announcing a New Library Guide on Diversity & Inclusion

As part of Jefferson’s commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive environment and collaboration with the Jefferson College of Life Sciences Committee on Diversity & Inclusion, the library has launched a new guide to resources on diversity and inclusion.

In the guide, you can find eBooks available in our collection on disability, gender and sexuality, and race and ethnicity.

You can also find videos on diversity & inclusion topics. The library has recently acquired access to Films on Demand, a collection of over 40,000 streaming videos, including many on topics such as LGBT, Race and Ethnicity, Sex and Gender, and Social Inequality. Additionally, the guide features videos on diversity & inclusion produced at Jefferson and archived in the Jefferson Digital Commons, Jefferson’s open access digital repository. These include recordings of the lecture series on Confronting Racism, Bias, and Social Injustice in Health Care.

In the guide’s section on research, you can learn how to search for diversity & inclusion-related research in PubMed. This section also includes a feed displaying the most recent articles appearing in PubMed on diversity & inclusion in medical education, health professions education, and life sciences education.

In the guide’s section on funding, you can find links to NIH diversity funding opportunities as well as tips for searching for diversity funding opportunities in the Pivot database.

You can also find in the guide links to diversity & inclusion resources available through Jefferson, the government, and in the community.
