Welcome to the HKS Library guide to research on diversity and inclusion. We hope to provide you with starting points for your research as well as some of the key resources that should allow you to find books, articles, primary sources, and data on your topic of interest. (For specific areas—race, ethnicity, national origin, multiculturalism, religion, gender, sexuality, (dis)ability, etc.—see the individual tabs for targeted resources for each area.)
