HeinOnline’s LGBTQ+ Rights Content Expanded

New content from the Williams Institute at UCLA has been added to the LGBTQ+ Rights collection available through the HeinOnline database. This database can be accessed through the A-Z database list on the Carney Library website.

“As the newest addition to HeinOnline’s Social Justice Suite, LGBTQ+ Rights is dedicated to charting the gay rights movement in America, showing the civil rights codified into law in the 20th and 21st centuries, as well as the inequalities that still exist today. Titles in this collection are grouped into subcollections focused on specific areas of society, examining issues from same-sex marriage to employment discrimination, military service, and more. 

A unique interactive piece within this collection is the¬†Timeline¬†charting the American gay rights movement from 1950 up to present day. Pulling in documents from HeinOnline, photographs from the Library of Congress, and YouTube videos, this timeline allows users to both visualize the progression of the gay rights movement as well as how HeinOnline documents connect to this overall historical narrative.” –HeinOnline LGBTQ+ Libguide
