My name is Evangeline Giaconia (University of Florida), and my research partner is Kestrel Ward (University of Florida). We are undertaking a study to understand how archival institutions engage their LGBTQ+ materials. To that end, we have developed a survey to collect data on how institutions around the US catalog, collect, use, and make accessible their LGBTQ+ archival materials.
The purpose of this study is to determine how archives use these historically invisible materials, with the aim of developing strategies for making LGBTQ+ materials more easily accessible. We encourage everyone to take this survey, no matter your knowledge about LGBTQ+ materials or culture. The survey is less than 20 questions, and data will be anonymized in any resulting work.
This is the anonymous link for the survey: https://qfreeaccountssjc1.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5APXNsY6oKKKFsq
