Diverse Book Finder is a searchable catalog that has analyzed picture books since 2002 for stories with human characters representing black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC). The project is funded by the Institute of Library and Museum Services in partnership with the Bates College Ladd Library in Lewiston, ME. It is predominantly for books targeted towards Kindergarten through third grade. It is unlikely that books for older students or board books will be included.
