Resources relating to race, ethnicity, LGBTQ+ and other marginalised communities


Suggest a Resource

The Library is working with the Students Union to add additional resources.

We welcome suggestions that will help us develop our collection to be more inclusive. Resources could focus on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, physical ability, socioeconomic class, or any other group that you identify.

Please use our Library Resources Request form for books and other resources that you will be using to support teaching. 

Suggestions for resources for general interest can be made using this form.

The LGBTQ+ Lives Online UK web project concentrates on identifying and archiving regular snapshots of public facing UK websites with an LGBTQ+ focus. 

Created and updated through a collaboration between the British Library, the UK Web Archive, and five other UK Legal Deposit Libraries - for more information click here.

Journals, Websites and Media

The following are books we are unable to purchase as ebooks. This is because the publisher has chosen not to make the title available for libraries to purchase, preferring to sell or rent directly to individuals either because this is allegedly more profitable, or they do not have the rights.
