For Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, visit the new book display on Regenstein Library’s first floor created by our Research Services Support Fellow, Juno Dong:
The books on display can give you a glance at our collections on the history, social image, economic status, and political engagement of the Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the States. While “Asian Pacific” is a broad umbrella term that covers many ethnically distinct groups, their shared existence as underrepresented minorities enables a collective identity to emerge from a wide range of personal experiences each individual has as an American of Asian and Pacific Islander descent in this country.
These selected books are located near collections highlighting this year’s UChicago Common Book, The Best We Could Do, by Thi Bui. All books on display are available for checkout.
Not on campus? Visit our accompanying Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month Guide, also created by Juno, as well as our guide on the UChicago Common Book. If you need help locating research materials on Asian and Pacific Islander Americans, please feel free to ask a librarian.
