Description :

This conversation-focused session delves into the importance of collecting, preserving, and making available materials documenting the history of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender activism. Panelists will reflect on successes and shortcomings in caring for the cultural memory of LGBT activists, movements, and daily lives in special collections libraries and archives as well as the nexus between education and activism within the LGBT community. The conversation will include not only knowledgeable panelists with unique perspectives, but also the audience, whose participation, questions, and perspectives are an essential part of the session, too. This program is sponsored by RBMS and the ALA Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Round Table.
