Online Trials of LGBT Videos

As we come to the end of LGBT month, the Whittaker Library is happy to announce that we have been kindly offered a trial access of the online resource, LGBT Studies in Video.
From today through 13th March 2013, all students, faculty, and staff may access LGBT Studies in Video here.  (NB, the trial is designed for on-campus use.)
"LGBT Studies in Video is a cinematic survey of the lives of lesbian, gay, transgender, and bisexual people and the cultural and political evolution of the LGBT community.  This first-of-its-kind collection features award-winning documentaries, interviews, archival footage, and select feature films exploring LGBT history, gay culture and subcultures, civil rights, marriage equality, LGBT families, AIDS, transgender issues, religious perspectives on homosexuality, global comparative experiences, and other topics.  The collection will have cross-disciplinary relevance beyond LGBT courses, serving research and teaching in different academic and performance fields.  The plan is to expand the collection to 500 hours in the not too distant future."
Please make use of this while we have access to it.  Do let Drama and Dance Librarian Alan Jones know what you think of it - you'll find his details on the Whittaker Library website.
