A new resource added to the GLBTRT Professional Tools page is a guide to print and online resources regarding LGBT issues in higher education. While over the past few decades, conditions have improved for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender college students, faculty, and staff, they still have to face generations of stigma and prejudice among peers, colleagues, and policy makers.
This resource is broken down by books written within the past twenty years, internet sources for students, faculty, and staff, and a guide for scholarly research related to LGBT issues in higher education. Each book listed in the resource has a link to the OCLC WorldCat record, where you can see which libraries hold that book. The guide for scholarly research includes a list of recommended databases available through most college libraries, as well as recommended subject terms to use in those databases. The resources provided tend to be more scholarly in nature, but the internet resources may appeal to students looking to apply to a LGBT-friendly college or search for scholarships, fellowships, or grants to pay for their education.
