Notes

Abstract: From 2017 to 2019 archivists and librarians at the University of North Texas Special Collections have worked with community members and city officials to create exhibits featuring archival materials from the LGBTQ Archive. There have been several obstacles to presenting accurate historical interpretation of Dallas LGBTQ community history, including lack of sufficient archival documentation, and differences between archival sources and community members’ personal experiences. Grappling with these challenges has allowed UNT Special Collections archivists and librarians to engage community members in a personal, meaningful discussion, and ultimately have led to both successful exhibits as well as strengthened relationships to LGBTQ community members.

ABSTRAKTI: Vuosina 2017–2019 University of North Texas Special Collectionin arkiston- ja kirjastonhoitajat ovat tehneet yhteistyötä lhbtq-yhteisön ja kaupungin virkailijoiden kanssa rakentaessaan LGBTQ Archivesin kokoelmiin perustuvia näyttelyitä. Historiallisesti tarkan tulkinnan esittämisessä Dallasin lhbtq-yhteisöstä on ollut monia hankaluuksia, mukaan lukien arkistoinnin puutteellisuus ja arkistolähteiden ja
yhteisön kokemusten väliset ristiriidat. Arkiston- ja kirjastonhoitajat ovat käsitelleet haasteita käymällä henkilökohtaisia ja merkityksellisiä keskusteluja lhbtq-yhteisön kanssa, mikä on johtanut sekä onnistuneisiin näyttelyihin että vahvempaan yhteisösuhteeseen.
