Find Diversity and Inclusion ebooks in the LJMU Library
The Library have enabled access to a collection of ebook titles via the Proquest platform that unearth award-winning content written and published by more voices; regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, physical ability or religious belief.
These titles are often historically difficult to find but a selection can be retrieved via our Every Voice: Diversity, Equality and Inclusivity Collection (opens in a new window) for you to add to your teaching and learning at LJMU. Find titles published in the past 7 years, running across interdisciplinary themes from authors around the world. Once you have found a title you will be able to download for off-line reading or stay online and read on a mobile device.
Also note the existing Black Lives Matters Reading Collection (opens in a new window) which is available through the Library and mainly contains print copies available to loan.
