Race and Law Research Wiki



About the Wiki 


This wiki is an electronic research guide on sources in race and law, created and

administered by the H. Douglas Barclay Law Library at the Syracuse University College of Law.  

It derives from a research guide (RaceandLawResearchGuide 2008.pdf) that was

prepared to support Syracuse University College of Law Professor Leslie Bender's Race and

Law seminar. The idea of a wiki arose from our desire to reach out to colleagues across

the SyracuseUniversity campus and beyond and invite them to collaborate on building

an inter-disciplinary resource that will be of value to all researchers interested in issues

related to race and the law.  


The wiki has been a collaborative effort from its inception. Professor Leslie 

Bender shared many resources with me from her Blackboard course site and 

generously offered guidance with the scope and organization of the research

guide on which this wiki is based.  Librarians Angela Williams (Syracuse University

Martin Luther King Library) and Bonnie Ryan (Syracuse University E.S. Bird Library)

have offered their expert knowledge and support to improve and expand the wiki.

The Reference Librarians at the Syracuse University College of Law have shared ideas

and provide ongoing assistance and guidance. Finally, Professor Law and Associate

Dean, Barclay Law Library Thomas R. French has provided financial and

administrative support. 


Thanks to all who have contributed and to those yet to contribute!



Faculty and academic librarians interested in becoming contributing

Content and Organization


Because of the scope of the subject, topics for inclusion were based initially on

Professor Leslie Benders' Race and Law course syllabus and broad subject

areas addressed in the Derrick Bell's Race, Racism and American Law, 4th ed.

For each topic entry, researchers will currently find bibliographies and research

guides; web resources and databases; and, legislative and administrative materials.


The wiki also includes sections on statistics, how to find books and articles,

research support on the Syracuse University campus, and suggestions for relevant news sources

and blogs.  Emphasis in all categories is on electronic resources; however, some references

to print sources have also been included.


Licensed electronic resources of the H. Douglas Barclay Law Library, the

Syracuse University Library, and the Martin Luther King Library, may have

access restrictions.  Many of the titles cited in the wiki have call numbers

for materials housed in libraries at Syracuse University. Borrowing privileges

vary. Contact your local library for information about holdings.
