LGBTQ+ Studies is a highly interdisciplinary area of research.There are a number of excellent research tools and resources that focus exclusively on LGBTQ+ content. There are also many other subject-focused research tools in the social sciences, humanities, science & technology areas, as well as general news sources, that include relevant information and resources of interest. This Guide will help connect you to relevant materials for this area of research.

In addition, you'll also find lots of great LGBTQ+ books to read listed here - please see our Good Reads! pages. A short list of LGBTQ+ videos is also available - enjoy!

Please contact me if you have any questions or need assistance using any of the tools listed here or help finding the information you need!
