In honor of April representing Sexual Assault Activism Month, the University of Iowa Libraries and the Rape Victim Advocacy Program (RVAP) came together to offer you a virtual library. There you can find a reading list of ebooks pertaining to sexual assault on college campuses in addition to a list of publications targeted toward a professional audience. Many more books on sexual assault are available in InfoHawk+. Try searching on terms such as rape; intimate partner violence; sexual harassment of women; or, sexual abuse victims. Talk with a librarian by chat, email, phone, or through a virtual consultation if you would like help finding more materials.
