LGBT Studies in Video - New Library database

Posted: Monday 16 April 2018

The Library has recently provided access to a new streaming video database, LGBT Studies in Video.

LGBT Studies in Video is a cinematic survey of the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people as well as the cultural and political evolution of the LGBT community. This collection features award-winning documentaries, interviews, archival footage, and select feature films exploring LGBT history, gay culture and subcultures, civil rights, marriage equality, LGBT families, AIDS, transgender issues, religious perspectives on homosexuality, global comparative experiences, and other topics.

LGBT Studies in Video provides students and researchers across disciplines a multi-content perspective on the LGBT political, cultural and social movements throughout the twentieth century and into the present day. It also provides key resources of interest to students and researchers in sociology, anthropology, psychology, counseling, history, political science, gender studies, cultural studies, and religious studies.

Individual videos can be embedded in a Moodle shell, or clips can be created to be shared or embedded. Transcripts of the video content run concurrently with the video content if required. For assistance in using these features in LGBT Studies in Video, or any streaming database provided by the Library, please contact your Liaison Librarian.

LGBT Studies in Video can be accessed here, and records for individual videos can be found via QuickSearch on the Library Homepage.
