Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Reading Room

In celebration of Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month, the Georgia Tech Library is honored to compile a variety of resources related to the history, culture, and study of Asia and the Pacific Islands. Georgia Tech is truly an international campus with students, faculty, and staff from all over the world. Celebrating and learning more about the experiences and origins of the members of our community represents the Library’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice on campus and beyond.
On the following page, you will find academic and popular readings and other media that help us understand the critical roles that the Asian and Pacific Island people and countries have played in shaping the United States in general and Georgia Tech in particular. We are also pleased to showcase some of the research and writings of our own faculty and alumni.
Lastly, the Georgia Tech Library condemns the recent attacks on people of Asian and Pacific Island descent and stands against discrimination, harassment, and violence of any kind. We welcome all members of the Georgia Tech community to come into our reading rooms for knowledge, reflection, and solace.
Please note: To access all resources on this page, you may need to be logged in to Georgia Tech's VPN.
