About This Guide

This guide provides an introduction to both personal and scholarly research on LGBTQIA+ topics. If you're looking for campus and local resources, services, and communities, please visit the the Triandiflou Institute for Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Transformative Practice's Resources and Services page and the Pride Alliance student organization page. The Oz Concern Navigator is another safe way to identify campus, local, and national resources offering various services and support.

Penfield librarians and library staff are happy to support your research.

Do It Yourself Research

We understand if you'd prefer to research on your own. In addition to the resources listed on this guide, we have How-To Guides to help you search, find, and access material. If you're not at the Oswego campus, visit the Library Services for Distance & Online Students guide for more details on accessing materials remotely.

Need a Resource We Don't Have?

If Penfield doesn't have what you're looking for, visit our Interlibrary Loan page to learn how to request to borrow items from other libraries (for free!).
