Multicultural Curriculum Transformation and Research Institute (MCTRI): Home

This guide to multicultural research resources at Alkek Library and beyond was created for participants in the Multicultural Curriculum Transformation Institute.


The Center for Multicultural and Gender Studies (CMGS) sponsors the Multicultural Curriculum Transformation and Research Institute and assists faculty with resources to encourage the infusion of multiculturalism through its Resource Center with over 300 books, articles, syllabi, and tapes. The CMGS Resource Center of Web and Print resources includes key resources in the Center. In addition, the web page includes links to key resources related to the study of diversity.


You'll find information about how to find books, search for articles, and about the many services Alkek has to offer you.  Alkek's Ask-A-Librarian service puts the assistance of librarians at your fingertips.
