Welcome to the LGBTQ* (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer, Questioning, etc.) Health Research Guide for the University of Kentucky! This page is a research guide to help assist you in finding the answers you need in regards to questions about topics of health and medicine in the LGBTQ* communities. On this page, you will find information on accessing publications through UK's library system, as well as links to organizations for physicians and patients.
Patrons at University of Kentucky Libraries are served by our native resource catalog, InfoKat. Through InfoKat, you can find information about our holdings of both electronic and print publications. You may also access our holdings via such databases as WorldCat, PubMed, and CINAHL.
Here at the MCL, we also provide speedy and dedicated InterLibrary Loan (ILL) services to our patrons. If our library system does not have access to the publication you are looking for in either print form or electronically (or if the journal volume containing the article you are looking for has been sent to our remote storage facility), you may be eligible to receive the publication through our ILL department. You can create an ILL account by clicking on "First Time Users" on the UK Medical Center Library ILLiad homepage and signing up!
