Davis Library Antiracism Statement

St. John’s University Libraries and the Davis Library fosters the open exchange of ideas and inquiry in a respectful environment free of harassment. Harassment may include comments, gestures, facial expressions, or imagery that demeans people based on language, religion, ethnicity, gender, physical or mental disability, physical appearance, or sexual preference. Those using library spaces, services and resources will treat other library users and employees with consideration and respect. We will respect the rights of others, and practice self-discipline. We will help protect the library collections and spaces while holding themselves and each other accountable for keeping these norms. Together we can create a library environment that is welcoming, caring and affirming.
