Many general resources, such as encyclopedias, as well as sociological treatments of LGBTQ+ issues,can be found in the HQ call number range (largely HQ74 through HQ77). However, materials on LGBTQ+, Queer Studies, and gender and sexual identity can also be found throughout the library in many disciplines. For instance collections on French literature, communications and mass media, English, history, religion, education and social services, all contain items on those issue. It is best when searching for materials initially to do keyword searches in the catalog on the specific topic within LGBTQ+ Studies in which one is interested. Remember also that changes in subject and key word terms have occurred over time and that different disciplines may use different terms. Searching under "homosexuality" may produce one set of works, perhaps historical ones, or clinical ones, whereas searching under "queer" may produce largely cultural or literature studies. "Gay", "GLBTQ", "LGBTQ", "Transgender" , "Asexual", "Non-binary" might also be searched as keywords. You are trying to pick up documents which have these terms in either the document itself or its bibliographic descriptions. The same goes for using Journal Finder to locate journals with LGBTQ+ emphasis,.
The books listed here are primarily meant to give a general overview of LGBTQ+ experiences or showcase the most recent works purchased by Hofstra University Library.
