Welcome to the guide for LGBT 200! This guide provides information about primary sources in Archives and Special Collections that may be useful for your assignments. They are arranged by topic: liberation and activism, lesbian-feminism, AIDS activism, and community.
Sources are located in either Archives or Special Collections, depending on the nature of the material. Generally speaking, print publications such as newspapers or other periodicals are kept in Special Collections. Archives and manuscript collections are kept in the Archives Department. The home location of each collection is indicated in this guide. The sources must be used in either Archives or Special Collections and may not be checked out. However, sources from Archives may be used in Special Collections, and vice versa, if that is helpful for you. The location and hour of each department are given under Research Tips.
