Medientipps / Media tips

On this page I share media tips for colleagues interested in critical library work, anti-discrimination and anti-racism work, critical race theory, inclusion, participation, and social justice issues. For now, this is just a list of some favorite books, articles, videos and websites. I’ll be adding and organizing this section more later on.
