About

The ALA Over the Rainbow Project is an an expansion of the highly successful ALA Rainbow Project. Over the Rainbow Project is an ad hoc committee of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered Round Table (GLBTRT) of the American Library Association (ALA).

Members consists of librarians whose charge it is to select from the year’s publications, books that reflect lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgendered (lgbt) experience for adults and to annotate selected titles.

Each year, the Over the Rainbow Project will publish a bibliography of recommended books for general readership. The bibliography will include books published between July 1 and December 31 of the previous calendar year. The committee’s charge is to create a bibliography of books that exhibit commendable literary quality and significant authentic lgbt content and are recommended for adults over age 18.

Our bibliography is not meant to be all inclusive but is intended as an annual core list for readers and librarians searching for recommendations of a cross-section of the year’s titles. Although the committee attempts to present titles for a variety of reading tastes and levels, no effort will be made to balance this bibliography according to subject, area of interest, age, or genre.
