Gay and Lesbian Studies. A Research Guide for the UCLA Libraries.
Walker, Walt Cat
Designed to aid students and other researchers in finding information about gays, lesbians, and homosexuality, this guide contains a collection of annotated bibliographies, or pathfinders, of both gay and general reference sources in each of 14 disciplines and lists of some major gay and lesbian works in each area. The materials listed are based upon the University of California, Los Angeles library collections, and they include gay and lesbian interdisciplinary reference sources, gender studies reference sources, popular/general interest reference sources, other interdisciplinary reference sources, autobiographies and biographies, essay collections, interdisciplinary periodicals, and nonfiction prose. Materials listed for each of the disciplines may include indexes, encyclopedias and handbooks, bibliographies, directories, and dictionaries. The disciplines covered are the arts, literature, philosophy, religion, history, social sciences, anthropology, education, sociology, psychology, sexuality, health science, business, and law. Introductory materials provide a brief overview of the current status of gay and lesbian studies programs and the availability of information in this area, as well as explanations of how to use this guide and how to search for information in gay and lesbian studies. The pathfinders are followed by a list of other resources for research, a guide to the use of gay-related terms in several online databases, and a title index to the reference works. (MAB)
