For weeks now I have been trying to follow and understand the facts – true and alternative — as well as the motivation and implications, of DACA. Paralyzed by the overload of information and prevarications I despaired of unraveling the truth, much less taking any sort of action.
It is with relief and renewed commitment to learn that I am finding a path to understanding. For this I am indebted to an excellent pathfinder prepared by Kim Clarke and Karen Carmody-McIntosh of the University of Minnesota Libraries. Students, members of book and study clubs, supporters of community groups grappling with the challenge to probe the depths of the issue – actually anyone who’s paying attention — will find the guide an indispensable resource.
This is one of many guides that the U of M Libraries staff create and share online. To learn more about and subscribe to the latest communications from the Libraries, click here: https://www.continuum.umn.edu/2017/07/library-search-gets-new-look/
The DACA resource is just one example of the many reasons that last May the U of M Libraries received this major national honor: https://twin-cities.umn.edu/news-events/u-libraries-named-recipient-nations-highest-museum-and-library-honor
