This month is LGBT+ History month, an opportunity to learn about lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and non-binary history, and we wanted to share some resources with you all…
LGBT+ is an area of research which can cover a wide range of academic disciplines so we would like to highlight the online guide to support research into LGBT+-related topics.
Taking the same format as our subject guides this guide focusses on the range of materials available from the Library and Special Collections relating to LGBT+ topics.
It is one of a series of cross-disciplinary research guides we have developed to support research in areas such as disability and inclusion, gender, and race and ethnicity (forthcoming).
It has been created, in consultation with staff and student representatives, to help you 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 the guide, so let us know what you think!
Join in with our 2020/2021 reading challenge
We’ve taken LGBT+ history as our February topic for our reading challenge. We have both e-books and ‘real’ books available to read on our reading challenge list here! Tag us on social media if you try any, or use #UoRreads2021, we’d love to hear about anything you have read and enjoyed!

You can also help us to continue to diversify the Library’s collections by putting forward your suggestions for Library materials to help support a more diverse curriculum.
