Subject: New Databases GMU Libraries Purchased



I am pleased to announce another set of resources which we have added to our permanent collections. These items were purchased by the GMU Libraries with end of year money. Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope these can be useful to you.






The following collections are available via the database A-Z list.


Archives of Sexuality and Gender (Gale)

Collection of historical primary source publications relating to the history and study of sex, sexuality, gender research and gender studies research. Materials span the sixteenth to twentieth-first centuries. Documentation covering disciplines such as social, political, health, and legal issues impacting LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) communities around the world are included, as well as rare and unique books on sex and sexuality from the sciences to the humanities.
