Q: What is the Reading Resilience Project?
Answered by: Kelly Blanchat

In 2015, during a wave of student activism aimed at making Yale more inclusive, Bass Library partnered with student groups to create the Reading Resilience Project. The project aims to highlight voices of commonly underrepresented peoples in library collections. The project is entirely based on student book recommendations, which are periodically put on display in Bass Library.

Members of the Yale community are encouraged to suggest creative works by and about people of color. Recommendations can be submitted online at: bit.ly/rrpyale.

The full list of recommendations from 2015 to present can be found at the project webpage: https://guides.library.yale.edu/Reading-Resilience.
