Finding LGBT themed books and media isn’t always as easy as it might seem.
Because of the diverse nature of the LGBT community, these materials can be found throughout the Library and online!
Normally, this wide representation would be a good thing, but it can certainly make it tough to find everything in one place.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Join our LGBT Tagging Project, and help identify LGBT resources for future generations of WPU students!
This might include:
The list goes on and on. Because it is a social activity, you can make your voice heard in identifying materials that are relevant to you.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
It’s easy to get involved, and takes as much or as little time as you are able to offer.
WHAT TAGS TO USE
As we get started with this project, it’s a good idea to be consistent with the terms used. But, feel free to add your own. Just remember that the tags should be terms that others might search for.
We also ask that every book you mark include the LGBT tag, to make it easy for folks to find things.
This is just a starting point. Be creative! Just make sure to use the LGBT tag on all items and any tags with more than one word (with spaces) should be enclosed in quotation marks ("LGBT Memoires").
FINDING TAGGED RESOURCES
Use the Books & Media tab, enter a search term (one of the tags) on the Library page and select Tag from the dropdown before searching.
OR, browse all of the available tags at: https://catalog.wpunj.edu/vufind/Browse
Dig down until you find the tag you're looking for!
Don't see it? Maybe you're just the person to identify these resources for us!
