Librarian Margaret Kendall introduces Manchester Metropolitan’s LGBTQ Resources guide

The Manchester Metropolitan library service’s new topic guide on  LGBTQ Resources (  is designed to support research on LGBTQ issues in any subject.  The guide has the following sections:

  • Books

This includes  a list of over 100 books and electronic books relating to LGBTQ issues available on a wide range of subjects, for example Art, Education, History, Law, Literature, Science and Sociology.  There is also guidance in finding LGBTQ books in the library and getting further help.

  • Journals and newspapers

This gives a selection of electronic journals, e.g. GLQ: a journal of lesbian and gay studies, and help in finding relevant journal and newspaper articles from a range of sources.

  • DVDS and broadcast media

This includes a selected list of documentaries and films available to borrow on DVD from the library or watch online as a streamed broadcast.

  • Law

This includes links to web sites about the Equality Law in the UK and LGBT rights in other countries, examples of case law and where to find them.

  • Archives and Special Collections

This includes links to Manchester, national and international resources for further research.
