Libraries are widely recognized as safe places for the LGBTQIA community to seek information. However, librarians’ biases and misunderstanding of transgender issues may negatively impact the patron service experience for this at-risk population. The TX-Gender Project for Libraries will develop a research-based resource for librarians on providing excellent patron services to transgendered persons.
