Abstract

Much work has been done in public and school libraries to serve the information needs of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning patrons. In this session, attendees will learn to transform these ideas into winning strategies for making an academic library a “safe space.” Presenters will provide an introduction to GLBTQ awareness, offer suggestions for providing collections and services for GLBTQ patrons, and share their experiences in building relationships with GLBTQ groups on campus and in the community.
