If none of these resources captured your interest, then visit the Multicultural Resource center during open hours and check out our FULL collection! Since we are still in the process of building our library, feel free to give the MRC staff your suggestions as to what should be added to our current collection. We want to make sure that our everyone on our campus can relate to at least one resource in the Center.
