Now Available: Archives of Sexuality & Gender
We are pleased to announce that we have subscribed to the Archives of Sexuality & Gender: LGBTQ History and Culture Since 1940, Parts I & II.
This fully-searchable collection from Gale features historical documents published in more than 30 countries on social, political, health, and legal issues impacting LGBTQ communities around the world. Rare and unique content from newsletters, papers, government documents, manuscripts, pamphlets, posters and other types of primary sources sheds light on the gay rights movement, activism, the HIV/AIDS crisis, and more. Includes sources from the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives, the Lesbian Herstory Archives, GLBT Historical Society, the London School of Economics, the New York Public Library and elsewhere. With material drawn from hundreds of institutions and organizations, including both major international activist organizations and local, grassroots groups, the documents in the Archives of Sexuality & Gender: LGBTQ History and Culture Since 1940 offer insight into topics surrounding history, psychology, sociology, LGBT and queer studies, women’s and gender studies, political science, and American and British studies, presenting important aspects of LGBTQ life in the second half of the twentieth century and beyond.
This acquisition supports one of the library’s 2018-19 to 2020-21 strategic priorities: strengthening our research prominence, through the library-wide objective of “developing diverse and inclusive collections of information resources”.
