In the academic library world, excellent student employees are essential. I’ve been fortunate to work with one such employee her entire four years here at OWU and am so happy she’s continuing her employment with us over the summer. After attending a conference, she came to me with the idea to create a LibGuide including resources for our LGBTQIA+ community. Sarah did most of the work collecting resources and formatting the guide. I just gave some editing input after she put it all together.
The finished product is an excellent new resource for LGBTQIA+ students at OWU. This comprehensive site includes information on how to find LGBTQIA+ books in library catalogs, a list of excellent websites, campus and off-campus resources, ally resources, and information on sex positivity.
