"Responsibility and respect of others and their religious beliefs are also part of freedom."
Islamophobia is fear and prejudice against the religion of Islam and Muslims, or followers of Islam. A phobia is an irrational fear. Some believe it is not irrational to fear Muslims, while others believe this fear has led to discrimination of Muslims, who are unfairly judged by their religion and race—especially by Western society. Islamophobia is not a new ideology; it has been around since the founding of Islam in the seventh century. Terrorist attacks in the twenty-first century have caused most discrimination and distrust against Muslims worldwide.

Prejudice toward Jewish people—whether considered as a religious or racial group—has occurred since ancient times, emerging in virtually every community Jews have lived in. Anti-Semitism includes everything from simple stereotypes to political or social marginalization to outright genocide, such as the infamous Holocaust perpetrated by Nazi Germany.

The SCF Libraries Catalog (Quick Search) and the Library Databases use specific terms or keywords to help organize items that are similar in subject. Those terms help users discover more sources related to a particular topic. Think of it as "hashtags" that we used since before hashtags existed!
However, keep in mind that this shared vocabulary is a product of society, based within a historically white profession and culture. Some terms are dated and might be offensive or inappropriate for current standards. There are librarians involved in social justice work who seek to disband antiquated and offensive terms, but that is a work in progress.
"Keyword/subject terms" evolve over time as society changes and research develops.
Remember, when you find a good article, ebook, evideo or website, keep track of the keywords used in that source and search using those terms too. Different databases use different keywords so rotating and trying different terms is important.
Here are some examples of keywords/subject terms that you can use to search for information in databases or catalog:
