About these collections:

Archives of Sexuality & Gender:
LGBTQ History and Culture Since 1940 covers topics including LGBTQ activism and the HIV/AIDS crisis. It provides researchers with the documents necessary to delve deep into the Gay Rights Movement with resources that may otherwise go undiscovered. Repositories for this collection include: Lesbian Herstory Educational Foundation; Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives; Women’s Energy Bank; GLBT Historical Society; National Library of Medicine; among other archives.

Associated Press Collections Online:
Gives insight into major events, people and trends from the mid-1800s through the twentieth century from the Associated Press Corporate Archive.

Hundreds of videos from the AP Archive and thousands of striking images from AP Images archive add depth to the original reporting and stories behind the news from this venerable news agency.

Liberty Magazine Historical Archive, 1924-1950:
Liberty flourished when illustrated magazines were the most important form of mass entertainment. This was an era of unique creativity and growing involvement in world affairs. Middle class America became much more interested in world events and their impact on everyday life in America. This digital collection provides a unique opportunity to view Liberty and how it charted the moods, attitudes, lifestyles, fads, and fortunes of middle class America through its three most significant decades.

The Illustrated London News Historical Archive, 1842-2003:
The complete digital edition (over 260,000 full colour pages) of the world’s first illustrated weekly newspaper. Celebrated for its vivid pictorial commentary on global news, the ILN is a unique resource for the history of the last 150 years.

National Geographic Magazine:
