New Library LGBT+ research guide
We’re all working hard to make our LGBT+ students feel welcomed and included at UoR. One way the Library aims to do that is by highlighting the resources we hold to support the study of LGBT+ topics. In celebration of February’s LGBT History Month, the Library has introduced a new online guide to support research into LGBT+-related topics. The guide takes the same format as our subject guides but focuses on the range of materials available from the Library and Special Collections relating to LGBT+ topics.
It has been created, in consultation with staff and student representatives from RUSU, to help staff and students find some of the key resources the Library can provide in this area, as well as point you towards other useful online resources, libraries and archives.
We’d love to hear your feedback on our new guide, so let us know what you think!
Help us develop more guides like this
We are planning to create a series of similar cross-disciplinary guides to support research around topics such as disability, race and ethnicity, and gender. If you would be interested in working with us on any of these, either by suggesting resources, commenting on the content of the guides, or meeting with us to talk through your own research interests in these areas, we’d love to hear from you – and your students. Please email Kerry Webb if you would like to be involved in some way or would like to share with us your ideas for additional guides.
