A while ago Anastasia Diamond-Ortiz of the Cleveland Public Library wrote on the Zine Librarians Yahoo Group, "Blogs are immediate, zines are deliberate." And here I am blogging an event that happened three weeks ago now. I think I'm missing the point! Therefore, I'm going to wrap up my GLBT ALMS recap now or never! (And theoretically my next zine will be deliberate, rather than hastily thrown together, poorly proofread, and with weak, nonsensical graphics.)

Day Two of the GLBT ALMS conference at the CUNY Grad Center.
Susan Stryker talked about how history can be
- a monument to ourselves
- a tool for future work
She was most interested in the last interpretation, and discussed it mostly through the lens of the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco, which she directed for five years after being a regular researcher and volunteer there.
GLBT ALMS Conference 2008: Coming to Terms
Day One of the GLBT ALMS conference at the CUNY Grad Center. Coming to Terms: LGBTIQ Thesauri, Folksonomies, and Taxononomies with KR Roberto, Ellen Greenblatt, Michael Waldman, and Analisa Ornelas. And the same bad mannered know-it-all from the previous session.
Day One of the GLBT ALMS conference at the CUNY Grad Center. (ALMS stands for Archives, Libraries, Museums, and Special Collections, btw.)
I arrived at the conference in time to attend my friend Emily Drabinski's panel on Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH).
Just so's you know, I'm going to make a post for each workshop I attended, rather than one superlong post about the whole event.
