One Community, 100 Books

A work in progress, One Community, 100 Books aims to capitalize on the spirit of social justice inspired by this semester's theme by encouraging students, faculty, and community members to record a short book talk about a favorite book and how it relates to an issue of social justice relevant to our community. A digital archive of the book talk collection will be linked to the UI Libraries catalog. Mini-session attendees can view a selection of videos created by UI librarians and university students who were the first to record book talks for the project. Recommendations will be provided for developing similar programs in other communities. Attendees are also invited to create their own submissions for One Community, 100 Books!
