I need to do some research in Gender and Queer/LGBT Studies. Where do I start?

Gender Watch (Harvard login) is a full text database of unique and diverse publications that focus on the impact of gender across a broad spectrum of subject areas. The database provides abstracts and the full text of some 175 academic and scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers, newsletters, regional publications, books, booklets and pamphlets, conference proceedings, and government, non-governmental organization, and special reports back to 1974.

LGBTQ+ Source (Harvard login), published by EBSCO, provides indexing and abstracts for over four hundred magazines, academic journals, news sources, gray literature, and books that deal with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender concerns.
