Diversity and Inclusivity in Higher Education Guide
Diversity and Inclusivity in Higher Education Guide
In light of recent protests on college campuses and incidents at Tulane, librarians created a guide with resources to support discussions of race and diversity in higher education. The guide includes links to articles, books, and websites that explore issues of diversity and inclusion on campus, including the “Diversity in Academe” series from The Chronicle of Higher Education. Links to recent racial incidents on college campuses, resources about discussing race in the classroom, and links to relevant research databases are also part of the guide. The guide also gathers resources that put the issues in context. 
New Orleans has a vibrant music community and while jazz, funk, and hip-hop dominate the popular imagination, there’s so much more to local musical life than just that. The New Orleans Independent Music Digital Collection seeks to expose the vast complexity of musical New Orleans by serving as an ever-growing research platform for local indie music.
We're always looking for more music to add to the collection. There are three core criteria for inclusion: the band must be based in New Orleans, the album must be an independent release, and Howard-Tilton Memorial Library must already own a physical copy of the album. To protect bands’ rights and sales, we only digitize one or two tracks of any album and only after securing the permission of the copyright holder. If you are a member of a local indie band with a recording out that you want to see in the Library and included in the New Orleans Independent Music Digital Collection, write to
