LGBT Studies Microfilm Research Guide: Home

Alphabetical list of materials on microfilm that are available to Emory faculty, staff and students relating to gender, sexuality, and queer studies.

About This Guide

The research guide was designed to make microfilm holdings at Emory related to gender, sexuality and queer studies more accesible to students and researchers. Unfortunately, microform collections are often overlooked, mainly because people do not understand what the microfilm contains or how to use it.

Most geneologist both professional and amateurs use microfilm regularly to locate birth, marriage and death records.  Census records are also contained on microfilm.  The microfilm collections housed here, have some of the most important and valueable materials relating to the Gay Liberation Movement, Women's Rights and early studies in sexuality.  The films contain personal letters, organizational meeting minutes, photographs and literally tens of thousands of periodicals, newspapers and magazines going back as early as the 1920.
