Library of Congress Subject Headings

Library of Congress Subject Headings (LC Subject Headings) 

Classifications agreed upon by all US Libraries and can be a helpful tool when you are searching for information. However, LC Subject Headings regarding sexual orientation and gender identity often do not reflect up to date or fully accurate terminology.  

Older materials especially will have the LC Subject Heading Homosexuality

Instead of Transgender, the LC Subject Heading is Transgenderism.
