Science EDI Library

The UNSW Science Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Working Group has established an EDI library, designed to bring you classic and contemporary thought and research on equity, diversity and inclusion in Science and Higher Education. Our current holdings are listed below.

If you would like to borrow a book, please email with your name and which book you would like to borrow. We’ll confirm availability and then invite you to collect your loan from Level 2 of the Dalton Building, Dean's Unit, UNSW Kensington Campus. Look for the sign that says "EDI Library". The lending limit is one book at a time and we ask that you return borrowed books within two weeks of the borrowing date, in the condition that they were borrowed in. If for some reason you misplace or damage the book, we ask that you replace it.

We'd like to extend our gratitude to Andrea Walisser who has made generous donations to our library.

If you would like to donate new or previously loved books please send us an email to arrange this. If you have suggestions of books we should add to our library please email

Happy reading!
