Gale is a leading provider of library resources and part of Cengage Learning. Recently they released the first part of Archives of Human Sexuality and Identity, a milestone digital program that brings together the largest collection of primary source content on gender, sexuality and identity. PR Newswire brought this interesting news to us in their article, “Gale Launches Largest Digital Archive of LGBTQ History and Culture.”
This particular archive meets a growing interest for content to support research in these disciplines. It also represents the unique content that Gale is bringing to researchers – important personal stories that provide a more complete picture of history.
Archives of Human Sexuality and Identity, Part I: LGBTQ History and Culture since 1940 brings together approximately 1.5 million pages of fully-searchable rare and unique content from microfilm, newsletters, organizational papers, government documents, manuscripts, pamphlets and other types of primary sources. Content is sourced from major gay and lesbian organizations worldwide – the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives, GLBT Historical Society and others – and covers social, political, health and legal issues impacting LGBTQ communities around the world, including the gay rights movement and the HIV/Aids crisis.
