Digital Library Spotlights
Welcome to The Sparrows' Nest, Nottingham
This month we have another rather ecclectic mix for you. Please see below a few more Fanzines we found prepping for the Anarcho-Punk Zine event (thanks again to everyone who dropped by and took part), as well as a bunch of materials that were requested by a couple of visitors (never hesitate to ask us to digitise materials you want to see in the Digital Library). Furthermore there is the usual mix of materials we came across, with an emphasis on anarcha feminist materials.
Given the recent 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, we decided to put our spotlight on some of the many documents in our collections documenting LGBTQ+ history in Nottingham.
Please note we have now (August 2019) updated the list below with a number of additional resources, prominently the lesbian papers Lookout! and Diversion. We still have a long way to go before we can feature a comprehensive account of local LGBTQ+ papers, but we are getting closer!
Furthermore, as of March 2020 we are also looking after the archive of the Out House Project.
Many thanks to the Nottinghamshire's Rainbow Heritage for allowing us access to their archives to add to the materials already in our collection.
This month we have yet again added a sizeable stash of materials, a mix of journals and pamphlets from three decades, including another lot of excellent fanzines.
