The faculty-staff Affinity Group recently received grant money to purchase new GLBTQI materials for the Library. See a listing of these new titles.

GLBTQI Subject Headings

You can search catalogs with quite a bit more precision when you are familiar with the subject headings which have been assigned by library catalogers. Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) are used in ScholastiCAT and most other academic libraries in the United States. Although these headings are occasionally dated and do not always reflect the most current terminology used in GLBT studies, they remain useful for searching library catalogs. Below is a list of some of the Library of Congress Subject Headings which are currently in use. The links will execute a search in ScholastiCAT so you can see which titles we have in our own library that have been assigned these headings.


Gay men

Gay rights

Gay youth




Parents of gays

Transgender people

Queer theory
