The Bernier LGBT Collection

The Bernier LGBT Collection has been created to increase the visibility and study of materials relating to lesbian, gay, bi- and trans- cultures and communities. Made possible in large part by the generous donations of Peter Bernier, a CBU alumni, the collection consists of several hundred items and continues to grow as new items are acquired.

The collection consists principally of academic works on LGBTQA issues and culture, as well as literature dealing with LGBTQA subject matter or written by openly LGBTQA authors. However, the collection spans multiple subjects and disciplines and features a range of formats as diverse as poetry, photography, erotica, anthologies, periodicals and more.

CBU faculty and community members are invited to recommend subject areas or specific acquisitions. To make such a request, contact Yayo Umetsubo (

The collection is not currently housed in a single space, but is interspersed throughout the general collection and can be found either through the library catalogue or in the shelves. All items are capable of being loaned by patrons as with other items in the general collection.
