Gay & Lesbian Abstracts is an essential research tool for all college, university,
and public libraries; GLBT organizations, community centers, and student groups.
Gay & Lesbian Abstracts offers a balanced, objective, and thorough review of popular as well as scholarly print, electronic,
and Internet publications and press of interest to the gay, lesbian,
bisexual, and transgendered community. Of paramount importance is the coverage of history, culture, interests, and concerns of the
GLBT community. Gay & Lesbian Abstracts is an excellent guide to the ongoing intellectual and scholarly discussion of subjects
which reflect the diversity of the GLBT community. Gay & Lesbian Abstracts primarily indexes publications addressing the social, legal, economic,
political, cultural, historical, literary, and health concerns of the GLBT community, including coverage of sexual
activity between consenting adults; other subject areas are covered peripherally. Gay & Lesbian Abstracts indexes a variety of
materials including non-fiction, reviews, and essays - excluding only fiction and erotica. Nearly 600 sources include: journals,
magazines, newspapers, newsletters, bulletins, books, proceedings, reports, dissertations, studies, web sites, and
LGBT Studies by School

The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) is a leading
progressive civil rights organization that has supported grassroots organizing and
advocacy since 1973. Since its inception, NGLTF has been at the forefront of every major
initiative for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights. In all its efforts, NGLTF
helps to strengthen the gay and lesbian movement at the state and local level while
connecting these activities to a national vision of change.
The Consortium was officially born at the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force's Creating Change Conference in San Diego (November, 1997) but have been working together on an informal basis for
several years. The combined vision and mission on the Consortium is to achieve higher education environments in which lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender
students, faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni have equity in every respect.
The Consortium's goals are to support colleagues and develop curriculum to professionally enhance
this work; to seek climate improvement on campuses; and to advocate for policy change, program development, and establishment of LGBT Office/Centers.
The Consortium is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and can accept your tax-deductible contribution.
The Consortium offers information of use to those who work with college and university students.
It usually meets twice a year (once at NGLTF and once at either ACPA or
NASPA) and communicate extensively via the internet. Your interest is appreciated.
ground breaking research on giving and volunteering to myth-busting analysis of the
economic status of lesbians and gay men, IGLSS leads the way in research and analysis on
questions important to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered Americans.
IGLSS is a national
independent public policy think tank. In its policy journal, Angles, the
Institute reports the latest findings on such critical issues as evidence of employment
discrimination and benefits of allowing same-sex couples to marry.
Here on the IGLSS
web site, you'll find the Institute's most current publications as well as opportunities
to participate in its work.
The E-Directory is utilitarian: it is designed to help
scholars collaborate. While the E-Directory is not a discussion group, it facilitates
extensive private collaboration.
It lists only those with e-mail accounts and currently
willing to receive mail. No one may participate without sending the simple entry form.
There is a public list
of persons who have agreed to have their entries posted publicly. They represent about 60%
of the scholars in the full E-Directory. The full E-Directory, with 800+ entries, is
available only to those who agree to be listed.
