The Rae Lee Siporin Library Library Photo

The Rae Lee Siporin Library is one of the largest libraries of its kind at a college or university with nearly 4000 books and periodicals written for and about LGBTQ people as well as a selection of DVDs. Students, faculty, and staff may study here, browse the holdings, or plug in their own laptops to work. Books may be read here or checked out. The libraries holdings can be found on the UCLA Online Catalog. Our check-out system is private and circulation records do not appear on your UCLA account. The Rae Lee Siporin Library is run by a graduate student in the Library and Information Science program at UCLA.

If you have questions or suggestions related to holdings and procedures, feel free to email our Library Intern, Cheryl, at libraryoutreach@g.ucla.edu.
