Resources and References

Much of the material found in this series was deliberately collected and subscribed to by groups in Edmonton acting as community information centres for Edmonton’s queer community. Places like the GATE office, and later the Gay and Lesbian Community Centre and the Edmonton Pride Centre office established library space where reference and resource material was made accessible for their members and interested public. The published items, including books, texts, and periodicals, often bear the stamp of one of the above organizations, and were likely passed on from one location to the next as centres closed and re-opened under new names and structures.

This series, the most extensive of the fonds, consists of the following sub-series: Bibliographies/Directories; Reports and Reference Texts; Articles and Clipping files; Conference information; and Periodicals. The periodicals include both local publications, as well as those published across Canada, in the United States, and elsewhere. For some of the serials, such as The Advocate and Times .10, there are many issues, while others may be represented by just a single issue or volume. The clipping files, likewise, include some topics that are thick with clippings and articles (such as ‘Civil Rights-Equality Rights’, while others may consist of a single item. It is interesting to consider which subjects were deemed important enough or of broader interest to warrant creating a clipping and article file. The Conference files provide information on conferences held locally, nationally and internationally, and often consist of promotional brochures, and related correspondence and printed information.
