Search for LGBT2SQ+ resources at the library

Searching for LGBT2SQ+ related information, authors and themes is often challenging as there are many different terms under which topics are classified. 

 Quick tips on how to find what you are looking for:

  • Keep in mind that terms used by LGBT2SQ+ communities evolve and change over time.  The standardized subject headings that libraries use can take time to catch up.
  • Try keywords such as: gay; gays; gay athletes; gay fathers; etc.; lesbian; lesbians; lesbian activists; lesbian mothers; etc.; queer; homosexuality; bisexuality; intersex; transgender; two-spirit; LGBT, gender non-conforming and sexual minorities.
  • Other key word suggestions: homophobia, transphobia and other terms depending what you are seeking.
  • If you find one item that fits what you are looking for click on the subject headings used for it and see what other items use that term.
  • Remember you can always ask one of our library staff for help with searching.
