No money for LGBT resources in your library? No problem! Collection Management Librarian Rachel Wexelbaum, who is also the editor of Queers Online: LGBT Digital Practices in Libraries Archives and Museums, Twitter administrator for Wikimedia LGBT+, and a member of the Wikipedia Library Steering Committee, will demonstrate how to maintain and promote an extensive LGBT collection to patrons in precarious economic times. The strategies discussed in this presentation include collaborative collection development, requests for donations, open resources, and Wikipedia engagement. This presentation will end with a call to action for those librarians beginning to engage in LGBT collection development and for those who must fight to maintain their existing LGBT collection.
