Resources for Design Justice

What Is Design Justice?

The Design Justice-Diversity Collection is dedicated to curating an equitable and accessible collection of resources in service of our diverse learning community. The collection is a collaborative and central partner in student success, faculty and staff excellence, research innovation, and social responsibility. The purpose of the collection is to build a platform where individuals have easy access to share knowledge and build an intentional collection that recognizes, value, and embrace the diverse and multiple identities within our community.  Containing readings, lectures, scholarly articles, and resources from authors with diverse backgrounds, this collection emphasizes a range in perspectives, authorship, audience and subject matter within the realm of design. By purposefully developing diverse, equitable and inclusive collections, we aspire to foster a community of scholars and lifelong learners who engage in critical inquiry and social justice that reflects their own background and the backgrounds of others.

What is in the Design Justice Collection?

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
