Join us for an engaging talk on 'Libraries and LGBTQIA+', where we will explore the pivotal role of information literacy in empowering marginalised communities. We will journey through the history of LGBTQIA+ representation in libraries, addressing the sometimes problematic subject headings and practices of the past. Ending on a positive note, discover the strides we have made at Kings College library to foster a more inclusive and welcoming space for all. We invite you to share your own insights and experiences, exploring ways to make libraries even more supportive and informative for LGBTQIA+ individuals.
