We hope this update finds you all safe. Although our doors remain closed until further notice, our Digital Library is of course open as usual. And we have some treats for you this month!

In March we announced that we have been entrusted with papers regarding the 'Out House Project', who were working to establish a local LGBTQ+ social centre between the 1980s and the early 2000s. Please see the list below and the dedicated post for links to digitised materials and further information on the project and this collection.

We have been busy working from home, tackling a massive and amazing collection of materials that had been sitting in the library room for a few months. Whilst we made good progress with that, it will be a while till this will find its way into the catalogue and the Digital Library.

But, given that we did not want to leave you stranded without any reading materials, please see below for our list of new additions to the Digital Library.

There is some truly amazing stuff in there. Cool IWW songbooks to keep you and those locked in with you entertained, a Bakunin pamphlet published in Switzerland in 1914, Spies for Peace stuff, Goldman, Kropotkin, a copy of Freedom from January 1902, and much, much more.

Stay safe, look after yourselves and those around you.

Dive in!
