LGBTQ+ Rights – New Research Database from the Library!

The WAW Library is happy to announce a NEW library research database.

LGBTQ+ Rights from HeinOnline charts the gay rights movement in America, showing the civil rights codified into law in the 20th and 21st centuries, as well as the inequalities that still exist today. Areas of focus include Marriage and Family, Employment Discrimination, Military Service, AIDS and Health Care, and Public Spaces and Accommodations, and Historical Attitudes and Analysis. This collection is rounded out by a curated list of scholarly articles selected by Hein editors, as well as a bibliography of titles, an interactive timeline incorporating documents from HeinOnline with other media, and an overview of LGBTQ rights in America from 1950 to the present day,
