Collecting LGBT at the LoC

The following article appeared last week in the Library of Congress Gazette, an in-house staff rag. It reports on an hour-long symposium in which the speakers discussed the LGBT collecting policies at the Library. The interest of the Library in LGBT materials has understandably increased in recent years. While there is certainly much more to collection policies and the handling of these particular materials than presented here, still, this may be of interest to members of BookmenDC.

Thanks to Giogio for sharing this "in house" perspective--and to Tim for working out how to post it here!

Cheers, Steve

Actually, Giogio figured it out all on his own!
