Campus Community Book Project Display

Peter J. Shields Lobby
Fall Quarter 2007

The University Library is pleased to participate in the 2007/08 Campus Community Book Project. This year's book is Luis Alberto Urrea's The Devil's Highway: a true story. Throughout the Fall Quarter, the UC Davis campus will be reading this book and discussing the issues it brings forth including immigration, human rights, globalization, and nationhood. The Campus Community Book Project has organized a full program of events and discussions which are open to all, including a photography exhibit by photographer and poet, Francisco J. Dominguez in the Peter J. Shields Library.

On exhibit in the Peter J. Shields Library lobby are recent books on immigration which were selected for display by Humanities and Social Sciences Librarian Daniel Goldstein. This highlighted collection represents only a fraction the resources available for those wishing to pursue research in immigration issues. Comprehensive coverage is available across many disciplines, including; Ethnic and Cultural Studies, Political Science, Government Information, Economics, History, Sociology and the Humanities. Researchers are encouraged to contact a librarian to learn more about print and electronic sources in these important areas of study.

To learn more about this year's book and the events that have been scheduled, please visit the Campus Community Project web site.
