This guide presents a variety of resources for students researching Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer topics, as well as provides our LGBTQ community and allies with information of a general interest and links where they may find support.
There are a variety of terms and acronyms used in the LGBTQ community, and change and growth in the language and culture is ongoing. Care has been taken to use the same terms as the resources have used in their own descriptions; the most widely accepted terminology has been used elsewhere throughout this guide. Should you have any concerns or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact the library.
