Libraries Acquire New Primary Source Database for LGBTQ Studies

The Llgbtqibraries recently acquired the Archives of Human Sexuality and Identity, Part 1: LGBTQ History and Culture Since 1940. This fully-searchable database consists of 20 collections with more than one million pages of primary source material on social, political, health, and legal issues affecting LGBTQ communities worldwide. Although most materials are in English, the database contains periodicals in multiple languages. Selection of materials is guided by an advisory board consisting of leading scholars and librarians in sexuality and gender studies.
The database supports research in a wide range of subject areas including Anthropology, History, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology and Women’s Studies. It is also relevant to the Citizenship, Rights, and Cultural Belonging Transdisciplinary Area of Excellence and the University’s new LGBTQ Center.
