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.
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.
