Making Invisible Histories Visible

The arrangement, description, and digitization of 80 manuscript collections and related audio visual recordings documenting lesbian and feminist activism and writing since the 1930s.

The UCLA Center for the Study of Women in collaboration with the June L. Mazer Lesbian Archives and the UCLA Library seeks NEH support for a three-year project to arrange, describe, digitize, and make physically and electronically accessible two major clusters of Mazer Archive collections related to West Coast lesbian/feminist activism and writing since the 1930s. The project also involves reformatting 700 hours of audio and video associated with these collections. These materials will be permanently held by and housed in the UCLA Library, with broad public access guaranteed on site through UCLA Special Collections and online through the California Digital Library. CSW has a successful track record, having processed and digitized five of the Mazer's collections in a two-year project titled "Access Mazer: Organizing and Digitizing the Lesbian Feminist Archive in Los Angeles." This project also produced a permanent partnership arrangement between the Mazer and the UCLA Library.
