A new exhibit has been installed on the 5th floor lobby of Langsam Library in honor of June being LGBT Pride Month. “Bridging Pride to Knowledge” highlights UC Libraries’ resources (books, journals, DVD’s databases, etc.) in LGBTQ subject areas. It includes information on the Stonewall Riots of June 1969 and features notable authors such as Edna St. Vincent Millay, Radclyffe Hall, Oscar Wilde and more. A bibliography is available in print at the exhibit and online.
The “Bridging Pride to Knowledge” exhibit was curated by Mikaila Corday and Susan Banoun of UC Libraries. Samantha Scheidler, spring semester communications co-op design student, designed the exhibit.
The exhibit is part of a grant UC Libraries received from the Provost’s Office to promote and celebrate diversity throughout the university community. Entitled “Bridges to Diversity and Inclusion” this initiative has provided for a school year filled with events, programs and exhibits designed to celebrate diversity on the UC campus and beyond.
