The Schomburg Center, the New York Public Library, and other institutions are collecting materials created by and about the LGBTQIA+ community. Check back regularly to discover additional resources, and use the tools discussed to discover resources on your own. Reference librarians are available to help you locate materials that have not been highlighted in this guide.
Below is a short list of online resources created outside of the New York Public Library that discussLGBTQIA+ history and communities.
Using terminology to find materials discussing the LGBTQ community can be difficult. While a list of subject terms has been shared specifically for NYPL searching tools, other terms may be useful elsewhere. Additional searching terms can be found at Homosaurus.org.
These Archives document LGBTQIA+ communities around the US.
