These resources include DVD's (Films and Documentaries), magazines, handbooks, guides, literature, and many other assorted resources to educate everyone on the LGBTQ Community. The Center is located in the Office of Social Equity and has an area to sit and read a guide or book as well as a large screen TV to watch any of the films available.

The Center is open as long as the Office is open, therefore following Valdosta State University's regularly scheduled business hours. All materials are available to be checked out as well for faculty, staff, and student-organizations to be used for discussion and education personally and in a group setting.
