To find information on LGBTQ topics and issuestry searching the following library resources: 


For introductory/encyclopedia articles: 

For essays on issues in the news (LGBTQ rights) or Pro/Con articles  (same-sex marriage):


For scholarly/non-scholarly, newsy and analytical articles:
Some of these are best for specific aspects of a topic, like Health, Psychology, Education, Global issues, and Criminal Justice.



For books and ebooks: 

Note: A search using just the search term 'LGBT' will likely retrieve too many results.  To get fewer and more specific results, try using more specific keywords and/or combining two or more keywords.  Examples: 

  • LGBTQ AND bullying 
  • Lesbians AND portrayals AND television 
  • Homosexuals AND "coming out" 
  • Transsexuals AND prison AND policy
  • Queer AND literature 
  • Gays AND healthcare
