Understanding Black Lives: Recommended Reading

What We Value

At Montana State University Library, we value diversity, equity, and inclusion. We seek out diverse perspectives, as they challenge us, help us learn, and broaden our worldview. We work to build spaces and services that are equitable and inclusive to all. [Read more about our mission, vision, and values.]
