October 11th, 2019 marks the 31st National Coming Out Day. The day was conceived by Robert Eichberg and Jean O’Leary as a day to celebrate coming out, and to recognize the anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights in 1987 (National Coming Out Day, 2019).
The Archer Library strives to not only be a place of learning and study, but also a place of support and safety. If you are ever in need of resources – whether it’s for an assignment or for more personal reasons – library staff are here to help you.
As a starting point, you may want to check out our new Research Guide on LGBTQ+ Resources. It offers information on writing standards for LGBTQ+ topics, library resources, and web resources – including local support services.
