C-05. LGBTQ+ Collections

 Record Group
Identifier: C-05
The USF Libraries’ Special Collections department is determined to expand its collection of historically significant lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) materials, both in monographic and archival formats. Our focus is on collecting materials that document LGBTQ history, culture, politics, community relations, and public health. While the Tampa Bay region remains an important focus, these collections are international in scope and provide valuable research material for scholars across disciplines.
