During February we are celebrating LGBT+ History Month! We are partnering with UCD Equality, Diversity and Inclusion to bring attention to the many resources we hold here in the UCD Library collections. This includes print books, electronic books (ebooks), databases and more. 

At the display is also featured selected historical material from UCD Special Collections. 

The Books

Check out our Spotlight display, now in the James Joyce Library. The books on this page are available to borrow from the display shelves, or find out more about them here, along with links to our library catalogue. There are many more and we will be rotating the display throughout the month.
