Statement of Solidarity

The MLML/MBARI Research Library shares MLML, SJSU, and MBARI’s institutional commitments to addressing racial inequality. We stand in solidarity with the Black Caucus of the American Library Association and the Executive Board of the American Library Association. We are proud to be one of many libraries across the United States to condemn violence and racism towards Black people and all people of color.
