Welcome to the RMIT University Library guide to LGBTIQA+ resources in the library. Also included are links to organisations who provide services to the LGBTIQA+ community.

This guide will help you discover the LGBTIQA+ books, ebooks, academic journals and videos we have in our collection.

Some of the resources are for fun and others are for those with more serious research interests.

We hope you enjoy the guide. Let us know what you think!
