Musselman Library’s LGBTQ Research Guide, established in 2012, is a resource that goes beyond connecting the library’s collections with the campus community and providing access. This research guide has generated opportunities to grow campus partnerships, foster a student’s interest in librarianship, and create a gateway for research and learning in the LGBTQ community that goes beyond the classroom. In our presentation we will outline the project from its early days as a student project to its current life as collaboration between the library and Gettysburg Colleges’ Office of LGBTQA Advocacy & Education.


This presentation was part the ACLCP 2015 Fall Conference for the Associated College Libraries of Central Pennsylvania as part of the 50th Anniversary and Member Showcase featuring Access, Collaboration, Learning, Community, Preservation in Harrisburg, PA on October 23, 2015.
