New resource guide: The Libraries has published a new resource guide on Anti-Racism, #BlackLivesMatter, and Civic Action. The purpose of this guide is to provide general information and research resources on anti-Black racism, anti-racist learning and practice, the Black Lives Matter movement, and related activist movements. The guide is being developed by librarians and staff, with input from members of the Mason community. The Libraries offers this guide as a starting point, not an exhaustive set of resources, which we will continue to update with relevant items. We welcome community recommendations via the Suggestions box located within the guide.
New resource-sharing center: The Libraries’ new Curriculum Center is an online repository for the very best lesson plans from Mason Libraries’ instructors. The site will be updated regularly with new plans, which are available for the entire Mason community to access and use in their classes. Within each lesson plan’s page, there is a link to an Office 365 folder which may be accessed with a Mason login. Anyone may submit lesson plans for inclusion in the Curriculum Center. All lesson plans are welcome, including those for undergraduate classes, graduate classes, and workshops and those for face-to-face, virtual, or hybrid instruction. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis and will be evaluated regularly throughout the year.
