inclusive library collections

The library has supported student societies and staff to acquire books and other resources relevant to their communities. We are committed to supporting individuals and groups through the purchase of resources. If you would like to discuss this with us, please email  

This Padlet page also highlights resource lists produced by external groups and institutions who actively work to promote anti-racism, disability justice, LGBTQ+, intersectional feminism, decolonisation and other aspects of social justice. We continue to work with teaching staff to facilitate inclusive and accessible resource lists and plan to develop a toolkit in line with these values.

We actively purchase texts from underrepresented groups, however not everything from these lists will be in stock in the library. Please Suggest a Purchase on our website if you come across something we don’t have.

Made with Padlet

We have begun to compile a list of suppliers and publishers that can help us bring in new perspectives to the library collections. Check out the Padlet page here and add your suggestions:
