LGBTQ+ Health: The Library Guide

Relevant, inclusive health information for members of the LGBTQ+* community, and for healthcare providers, researchers, and those studying to enter into those roles, is a necessity. And yet, it can be hard to find. 

Through a partnership between Dalhousie Libraries, Nova Scotia Health Authority Library Services, and Halifax Public Libraries, an online guide highlighting LGBTQ+ health resources has been created. LGBTQ+ Health is the happy result of this alliance. 

Inside the guide

Your health is distinctly important. And when you seek information and support, it should be one click away.

Halifax Public Libraries, Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) Library Services, and Dalhousie University Libraries—with input from those we aim to serve—collaborated in researching and selecting these resources for the LGBTQ+ community, healthcare providers, researchers, and policy makers. This is a living and responsive resource that is frequently updated to serve and reflect you and your needs.

From books and website links to local support groups, LGBTQ+ Health is a one-stop portal to reliable, specific, and inclusive digital resources.

  • Preserve your privacy with independent research.
  • Address your specific need with a variety of resources.
  • Share reliable information with service providers, family, and friends.
  • Connect with groups and spaces across the province designed to serve your health needs.

*Note: For the purpose of brevity, we use the term LGBTQ+ where the '+' is inclusive of two-spirit, asexual, non-binary, questioning, and all other identities who find a home within the broader label.
