The University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) Library stands in solidarity with the Asian community against anti-Asian racism.
UTSC staff and librarians have assembled an initial list of resources that aims to celebrate Asian voices, educate on anti-Asian racism and history in Canada, and provide resources on eliminating racism in our lifetime.
UTSC community members are invited to submit their suggestions via this form.
This initial list is a collaboration between the UTSC Library, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Office and International Student Centre in support of the UTSC Asian community. Please visit this link for additional student resources from the UTSC Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Office and the International Student Centre.
