The LGBTQ Resource Center Library


The LGBTQ Resource Center contains an expansive check-out library. We have diverse sections from Biography and Fiction to Coming Out and Sexuality.

Anyone can come in, create an account, and check out up to 3 books at a time; books can be checked out for a period of two weeks.

Our space also has subscriptions to Out, The Advocate, OP, and Camp Kansas City. We also have a large archive of magazines including Out, The Advocate, OP, Curve, Hero, Girlfriends, and Alternative Family Magazine. Magazines are not available for check-out, but anyone is welcome to come in during open hours and look through any and all of them. These magazines are a great resource for various historical resource projects!

If you are Mizzou faculty or staff, we also have educational DVDs available to check out for screening. Please email for more information on checking out DVDs. Students and the community are welcome to come into the space and watch our DVDs in the lounge. Some of our titles include:  TransToilet Training,Before StonewallAfter Stonewalland Venus Boyzamong other titles.

Our library is completely made up of books donated to us. If you’d like to donate a book (or two or fifty) to us, not only would you be helping strengthen the resources for our campus and community, but we’ll proudly display your name in the front with a bookplate stating your generous donation.
