LGBTQ Pride at the Library

by Paula Dempsey 5/13/2013 4:12:00 PM

Not everyone associates libraries with LGBTQ pride, but as a profession, librarianship has the distinction of the nation’s first gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender professional organization. The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table (GLBTRT) of the American Library Association (ALA) was founded in 1970 as ALA's Task Force on Gay Liberation. rainbow flag

The DePaul Library carries on that proud tradition by collecting books, media, and e-journals to support both the Lesbian/Gay/Bi/Transgender/Queer Studies Program and the non-academic interests of students of all sexualities and gender identities.  The LGBTQA Student Services Office also has a collection of materials for checkout, supplemented by second copies in the library. 

See the research guide for LGBTQ Studies for a selection of e-resources, reference material, and books and media. Know of a worthwhile resource that you're not finding in the library? We welcome your suggestions -- contact Paula Dempsey.
