October commemorates LGBTQIA+ History Month, a perfect time to provide an update on the Law Library’s recent LGBTQIA+ acquisitions.

In the past year, the Law Library has added many new resources to its foreign law collections. To learn more about navigating LGBTQIA+ resources at the Law Library, our beginner’s LibGuide to LGBTQIA+ legal research is a great place to start.

The Library’s LGBTQ+ Studies Web Archive is another great collection to pair with LGBTQIA+ legal history research. If you are in the DC area, the “gay corner” of the Congressional Cemetery is another interesting way to engage with history during this month. The skies over Capitol Hill one early fall morning seemed to celebrate as well.
