Carmichael has written widely on the history of southern libraries, and in particular the role of different library education programs in influencing the spread of professional librarianship throughout the southern region. A secondary interest, derived from a male librarian survey on which he was advised by an older scholar not to ask the sexual orientation of survey respondents, is gay library history—not so much the history of particular figures and events as the context through which gay liberation, gay literature, and professional gay identity emerged in the 1950s and 1960s.
Carmichael himself has been publicly out since 1978, although his sexual orientation was suspect to most people who knew him prior to that date. He maintains, however, that gay history is secondary in intellectual importance to the history of gender in that the assignment of social –and professional–roles is usually based on the way that male and female roles are socially defined, whatever other verbal or surgical enhancements we may add to the mix.
He has reviewed many core LGBTQ book titles in the Newsletter of the GLBT Roundtable of the American Library association, including “Queer (In)Justice: The Criminalization of LGBT People in the United States,” “Loving Someone Gay” and “Gay Life.Com”
Active in the field of LGBTQ librarianship since 1986, she has edited two books on the topic, co-compiled an English language and a bilingual LGBTQ thesaurus, co-chaired the American Library Association GLBT Round Table, and served on a number of advisory boards, including those for the EBSCO LGBT Life Database and several reference works. Her research focuses primarily on LGBTQ and diversity issues in librarianship and has been published in a variety of scholarly journals and edited collections.
