The 10 Best LGBT Romances in Literature

The 10 Best LGBT Romances in Literature | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

Since we’re always thinking about books, we’ve collected ten wonderful literary LGBT romances to get you in the mood. From aching first love to rambunctious adulthood, this list offers something for everyone, regardless of gender or sexual preference. Heartbreak — like disease, love, and death — doesn’t care if you’re hetero-normative or not. It’s just part of the rollercoaster human experience. So, break out your vinyl of Elliot Smith’s XO, and get your tissues ready — or look forward to spring flings, and revel in human sexuality.

"Bad Libraries Build Collections, Good Libraries Build Services, Great Libraries Build Communities"

There is nothing that says that good and great libraries don’t or can’t build collections. It is a matter of focus. If librarians focus solely or disproportionately on the collection, that is bad...If we are talking focus, what is the difference between bad libraries and good ones? Good libraries focus on users. That is they evaluate the utility of the collection [in] relation to user needs. What do people want and need in terms of the collection, and how does that balance with all the other things the library does (reference, programming, digital resources, instruction, etc.). Here not only do we look at user data such as circulation and such, but the whole user experience.
