- Queer and feminist approaches to traditional library topics including classification, pedagogy, collection development
- Works that address gender and sexuality issues in conjunction with other articulations of difference including race, class, nationality, etc.
- Practical approaches to developing community-based GLBTQ collections
- Materials addressing library needs of specific populations, e.g., GLBTQ youth, elders, etc.
- Workplace issues, e.g., 'coming out' at work
- Historical perspectives on GLBTQ and women's issues in the library
- Works that bring library issues into conversation with contemporary theoretical debates in feminist, queer, and gender studies
