In 1995 Arnold T. Schwab, CSULB Professor Emeritus of English, established a named endowment for the purchase of books, especially poetry and fiction, with gay themes--particularly those books issued by gay, non-mainstream or chapbook publishers. The endowment also supports the purchase of biographies or critical studies of gay poets or novelists.
The collection also includes Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Intersex and Asexual authors/creators and content across academic disciplines, from the humanities to social and natural sciences.
This Library Guide (libguide) lists most of the titles of books and films that have been made available through the Schwab endowment.
