Your Guide to LGBTQIAP+ Literature in the UNI Youth Collection

Wednesday, August 31, 2016 - 6:50pm - This year, Leila Rod-Welch and I brought a whole bunch of Youth books to the Rainbow Reception. I meant to bring a link to our LibGuide of LGBTQIAP+ resources, but I forgot! For information about books in the Youth Collection, and a few additional resources, you can see our libguide at http://guides.lib.uni.edu/queeryouth. Feel free to get in touch with questions as well--all my contact information is on the guide. I've also added a link to our page of Bibliographies & PowerPoints, in the top "LibGuides" section. --Katelyn.
