Evaluating Your Resources

Whether you're using resources from the Library or the web, it's important to evaluate what you're reading! Is it accurate? Credible? And how do you know? The Learning Portal has a great guide to help you get started.

Welcome to the 2SLGBTQ+ Research Guide!

Welcome to the 2SLGBTQ+ Research Guide at the Parrott Centre. This guide brings together resources related to 2SLGBTQ+ topics.

Not sure how to get started? Take some time to explore the guide, or contact the Library. We can be reached by email or by calling (613) 969-1913, Ext. 2249.

What does 2SLGBTQ+ mean?

2SLGBTQ+ is an abbreviation that stands for: Two-Spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (or sometimes questioning). The plus-sign signifies a number of other identities, and is included to keep the abbreviation brief. You can learn more at OK2BEME. This excellent site provides more information on what 2SLGBTQ+ means, and explanations of all the identities included in it.

The use of respectful, inclusive language and terms is important. We recommend the following resources on inclusive language:
