Preserving Queer Life in Southwestern Ontario: UWindsor digital archive project shared with international audience

Queer Life in Southwestern Ontario

As parades and celebrations took place around the world in June to celebrate Pride Month, Information Services Librarian Scott Cowan used his platform to highlight the importance of queer stewardship in Windsor-Essex to an international audience at the 2019 ALMS conference hosted in Berlin, Germany.

Over 400 participants from over 40 countries gathered to discuss the collection and preservation of materials of all types from LGBTQ2+ communities.
