We are very pleased to announce that the resource guide to the collections of the June L. Mazer Lesbian Archives is now in print. Edited by Kathleen A. McHugh, Brenda Johnson-Grau,and Ben Raphael Sher, it contains short essays by some of the participants in the project and provides information on all the collections that were processed. Funded in part by an NEH grant and completed through partnership between the Mazer Archives, CSW, and the UCLA Library, “Making Invisible Histories Visible: Preserving the Legacy of Lesbian Feminist Activism and Writing in Los Angeles” is a three-year project to arrange, describe, digitize, and make physically and electronically accessible two major clusters of Mazer collections related to West Coast lesbian/feminist activism and writing since the 1930s.
As the project is being completed, we have published this volume to share an overview of the project and materials with researchers, archivists, and the community. It is available in print and for download as a PDF from the CSW website: http://www.csw.ucla.edu/publications/book
