Welcome to the New Resource Roundup, a series dedicated to highlighting Falvey’s new databases and acquisitions that help make you an excellent researcher, student, and citizen!

Happy Pride Week, Wildcats! Over the next five days, Villanova University will have events all over campus to celebrate the queer community. However, in Falvey, we are constantly expanding our sexuality and gender identity-related resources to help you excel in your research. Check out our newest acquisitions today!

The Falvey Library also wants to remind you of our Diversity & Inclusion Resource Guide, launched in 2017. We hope you will use the guide as a way to explore a vast range of social, political, race and gender-related issues in today’s world.

This page offers a point of entry for exploration and seeks to provide a space for genuine personal, intellectual and emotional growth. As a library community composed of diverse voices, we intend for this resource to allow you to engage with voices, ideas, and stories both familiar and new.

Whether this resource serves as your first encounter with the perspectives it offers or you’re eminently familiar with these paradigms, it is our hope that the resources assembled here will aid in your growth as a member of the Villanova community and as a global citizen.

Use the energy and passion ignited from LGBTQ+ Awareness week to educate yourself and others, and let the LGBTQ+ section in the resource guide help you.



For any specific research-related questions regarding sexuality or gender identity, contact Susan Turkel ( at Falvey Memorial Library.
