Extended Study Hours Are Here!

Beginning at 9:00 am on Sunday, April 29, the library will be changing over to its extended study hours for the last week of classes through the end of exams. During both weeks, we won’t close on Sunday through Thursday nights, and we’ll have extended hours of operation Friday night through Sunday morning.

On days when we don’t close overnight, we’ll be offering free coffee, tea, and snacks to everyone studying into the wee hours. Be sure to get the academic year sticker on your i.d. updated so that LUPD can confirm that only Loyola community members are in the building during the late hours. (Parking Services can help you with this!)

Now available online: Archives of Sexuality & Gender: LGBTQ History and Culture Since 1940 Part 1

With material drawn from hundreds of institutions and organizations, including both major international activist organizations and local, grassroots groups, the documents in the Archives of Sexuality & Gender: LGBTQ History and Culture since 1940 present important aspects of LGBTQ life in the second half of the twentieth century and beyond. The archive illuminates the experiences not just of the LGBTQ community as a whole, but of individuals of different races, ethnicities, ages, religions, political orientations, and geographical locations that constitute this community. Historical records of political and social organizations founded by LGBTQ individuals are featured, as well as publications by and for lesbians and gays, and extensive coverage of governmental responses to the AIDS crisis. The archive also contains personal correspondence and interviews with numerous LGBTQ individuals, among others. The archive includes gay and lesbian newspapers from more than 35 countries, reports, policy statements, and other documents related to gay rights and health, including the worldwide impact of AIDS, materials tracing LGBTQ activism in Britain from 1950 through 1980, and more.  The archive is vital for scholars and researchers focused on gender and LGBTQ studies, women’s studies, American studies, civil and human rights, journalism, social movement history, British twentieth-century history, and more.  Materials include magazines and ‘zines, photographs, press releases, memos, and government publications.  Browse by collection, visualize results and save documents.  Search by itself or as part of Gale Primary Sources.
