Libraries play a powerful role in supporting diverse perspectives in STEM by providing access to resources, promoting inclusivity, and fostering collaboration. To help libraries represent a wide range of perspectives in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), including those from underrepresented groups, EBSCO Books librarians have recently curated a new Featured Collection, Diverse Perspectives in STEM.
This well-balanced collection includes more than 75 academic e-books written and edited by authors from historically marginalized people groups across many different STEM disciplines. This collection includes key texts from experts in their fields, guidance on diversifying STEM communities, memoirs by scientists and engineers from historically marginalized groups, and local studies from around the world with global applications.
Here is a brief sampling of the e-books included in our new Diverse Perspectives in STEM Featured Collection:
