Pricing is now available for EBSCO's LGBTQ+ Source (Formerly LGBT Life with Full Text). There has been a 1.5% increase over last year's pricing.

This resource ranked highly in the last BC ELN resource forum. Initial pricing was negotiated as an add on to the Common Suite. After extensive negotiations, EBSCO further reduced initial consortial pricing.



LGBTQ+ Source is the definitive database for LGBTQ+ studies. It provides scholarly and popular LGBTQ+ publications in full text, plus historically important primary sources, including monographs, magazines and newspapers. It also includes a specialized LGBTQ+ thesaurus containing thousands of terms. LGBTQ+ Source includes full text for many of the top LGBTQ+ publications. Most of these titles are not available in full text from any version of Academic Search. Because it is the full-text companion to LGBTQ+ Life, it provides indexing and abstracts for hundreds of journals, books and reference works.

Additional content includes author supplied abstracts, author supplied keywords, author affiliations and searchable cited references.

Content includes:

  • More than 150 full-text journals
  • Nearly 160 full-text books and reference materials
  • More than 280 abstracted and indexed journals
  • More than 350 abstracted and indexed books and reference works
  • LGBTQ+ thesaurus containing nearly 9,000 terms
