Still can't find the item? Use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to request books, media and articles from other libraries when they are not available at Mason or the WRLC. Start your research early if you want to take advantage of this wonderful service as it can take up to 2 weeks.
At Mason libraries, we use the Library of Congress Classification (LCC) and the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) to classify and describe materials. These systems are over 100 years old, and although constantly changing are still reflective of the white, male, cisgendered, heterosexual bias of their conception. Librarians at Mason are working to change harmful subject headings in the catalog. If you have suggestions for how language might be improved, please use this form.
Print resources for LGBTQ+ Studies are located primarily in the Fenwick Library. Audiovisual materials are also located in the Fenwick Library.
