In celebration of June, LGBT Pride Month. . .
Following their mission of providing communities with access to all points of view, libraries and archives have been at the forefront of documenting, collecting, and providing access to LGBT history and culture. While much of this work has been in the print environment, institutions are promoting wider access to this material through digitization and open online access. Not unexpectedly the larger coastal city institutions have blazed the path to online collections, for example, the New York Public Library’s LGBT and HIV/AIDS Activist Collections and San Francisco’s GLBT Historical Archive’s online radio show archive, Gayback Machine.
