Welcome! This guide shares library resources on LGBTQ+ Studies and related fields. It is intended for students and other researchers looking for resources and search strategies that address the interdisciplinary and intersectional nature of LGBTQ+ Studies, or Queer Studies.
The guide is primarily organized by type of resource:
Looking for current issues of magazines and newspapers? We have online access for many titles! See more on the Primary Sources page.

Listed here are additional research guides focusing on particular collections or libraries.
These resources on the Overview tab offer a wide range of formats across multiple disciplines, including search of scholarly journal articles, books and ebooks, and newspapers and magazines, with OneSearch being the broadest and most interdisciplinary, and Gale OneFile: Gender Studies the most specific to LGBTQ+ Studies and related topics.
LGBTQIA+ Health Research Guide from UCSF Library - includes links to reports, data sets, and best practices and methodologies
Materials by and about LGBTQ+ people are sometimes described in library and archives collections using outdated, inaccurate, and offensive, or simply incomplete terms which can make for a challenging search process.
Some content in this section is adapted from the work of Gina Bastone at the University of Texas Libraries and Stacy Reardon and Jennifer Dorner at the UC Berkeley Libraries.
If you have questions about research in LGBTQ+ Studies, recommendations for this guide, or purchase suggestions for the collection, please contact Katerina Allmendinger, liaison librarian for Women & Gender Studies and LGBTQ+ Studies.
