The BHCC Library maintains a listing of online resources for diversity-related readings and activities, including the Book of the Month Club sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Additionally, there are several resources available via the World Wide Web related to diversity issues. The Association of American Colleges and Universities and the University of Maryland at College Park have designed DiversityWeb to connect, amplify, and multiply campus diversity efforts through a central location on the Web. Campus practitioners can turn to this Ford Foundation supported site whenever they need to find—or to share—useful resources on ways that campus leaders are making U.S. diversity a central educational priority.
