      Greetings all,

      I am pleased to tell you about The New York Public Library's new
      focus on its GLBT collections. You may have seen it discussed it
      the NY Times yesterday,
      (http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/04/03/preserving-gay-and-
      lesbian-history-at-the-library/?hp)

      A new donor committee has been created, the LGBT@NYPL, to raise
      funds to catalog, digitize, and endow the GLBT collections. As you
      probably remember, the incredible collections include the archives
      of the Gay Men's Health Crisis, Act Up New York, the People with
      AIDS coalition, and the personal papers of many GLBT leaders,
      including Barbara Gittings and Kay Tobin Lahusen.

      Also, a new blog site has also been created, which includes links to
      many of the materials which have already been digitized. That web
      site is http://lgbt.nypl.org/ If nothing else, be sure to check out
      the 1962 photo of Barabara Gittings in the shower!

      Hope you will take a moment to check out the site, and let us know
      what you think! And of course, if you are able and interested, you
      can join the support group right there on its web site.

      Quick note from Erica - if you read this article and don't know who
      these people or organization are - look them up! That is *exactly*
      why these archives are so important. :-)

      Cheers,

      Erica
