Out In Chicago

Question:  Hello there, do you know if the library has any books that talk about the Chicago LGBT homeless community?

Answer: To learn what books we have, check the DePaul VuFind Catalog , which is searchable by keyword, subject , author and more.  In this case, however, the topic may be too specific for a book.   We have many titles about LGBT issues in general, and many just about the LGBT community in Chicago.  But none specifically examining the homeless community in that population.  Finding journal articles, newspapers, or researching local organizations would be a good alternative.  Also, instead of looking for the one perfect source on a topic, you can look through some of the many articles about the homeless LGBT population and articles about the homeless population in Chicago, and then make your own connections between the two.
