About DEOMI Library

The Claiborne D. Haughton Jr. Research Library

The mission of DEOMI's Research Library is to support DEOMI's education and research goals by meeting the information needs of DEOMI faculty, staff members, students, visiting researchers, and other patrons and stakeholders. The library collection is constantly expanding and currently consists of over 19,000 books, periodicals, and multimedia items on equal opportunity, equal employment opportunity, diversity, culture, cross-cultural competency, and other human relations topics.

The library supports the educational and research missions of the Institute by:

  • Providing DEOMI faculty, staff members, students, visiting researchers, and other eligible patrons with:
    • access to a collection of printed materials (books, journals, magazines, newspapers, and reports), multimedia (CDs and DVDs), visual aids (posters and artifacts), and electronic resources (including commercial databases; open-source DOD, government, and academic web sites; and other information sources)
    • reference and research assistance services
    • research skills training
    • Inter-Library Loan services (ILL)
  • Creating a weekly compilation of electronic news links, collected from a number of media sources, on issues relevant to the subjects of equal opportunity, equal employment opportunity, diversity, and cross-cultural competency. The News Links can be found on DEOMI's public website.
  • Providing an inviting and well-equipped space for study and research, including a common reading room with computers, printers, copiers, scanners, study desks, and reading chairs, as well as four private meeting rooms complete with audio-visual equipment and Internet access.

The library staff consists of highly professional, friendly, and service-oriented personnel, eager to assist library patrons in their inquiries and research.
