A guide for members of the Simmons community interested in learning about the history of the LGBT+ community in the US

Browsing in the Library

If you would like to browse for more books on LGBTQ+ in the Beatley library, and any other library that shelves books using the same system, these books will primarily be found in the section where the call numbers on the book spines start with HQ. This is the section designated for Human Sexuality. If you are unable to locate the section, do not hesitate to ask a librarian for help.


If you would like to pursue further research on the topics in this guide, here are some databases that provide access to more resources.
