Marginalized Historical Perspectives on Human Rights and Social Justice

Libraries around the world have told us about the need to support online learning and research in emerging areas of study. And, current events tell us that sources that span the breadth of historical and contemporary perspectives are needed more than ever before.

ProQuest's extensive range of resources include the voices of communities that have often been marginalized. Now, these resources can be expertly curated to support your institution's unique needs.
