Choice Reviews is a magazine published through ACRL in which scholars review monographs. Choice is considered the premier source for reviews in higher education. Below is a diversity assessment of Case Western Reserve University's library holdings as compared to Choice Review's Outstanding Academic Titles deemed "essential" in specific interdisciplinary subjects tagged by Choice.
The analysis below considers a title "in holdings" if a CWRU campus library owns a physical copy and/or an eBook copy. "Not in holdings" means CWRU researchers do not have immediate access to a title as a physical book or an eBook.
Interdisciplinary subjects analyzed include African and African American Studies, Asian and Asian American Studies, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies, Islamic Studies, Latin American and Latina/o Studies, Middle Eastern Studies, Native American Studies, Women's and Gender Studies, Racial Justice.
