Yale University Library contains a collection of nearly 15 million print and electronic volumes that are housed in 15 libraries, including Sterling Memorial, Beinecke, and Bass libraries, the Center for Science and Social Science Information (CSSSI), as well as many other school and departmental libraries. Our collections range from ancient papyri and early printed books to digital collections and electronic databases; and they transcend a wide array of formats including text, photographs, video, audio, data, maps, and ephemera. The library includes over 10 special collections units, two of which, Beinecke and Manuscripts and Archives have significant holdings documenting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender history. In building its magnificent collections over the last three centuries, Yale has committed to assist in the preservation of human knowledge.
