Gaming, Film, and Ephemera: Women’s Studies and Academic Collections
Monday, July 13, 2009
8:00-8:30: WSS Awards Presentation
8:30-12:00: WSS Program
Location: McCormick Place West W-192b

The panel will address mixed archival collections at the Schlesinger Library, the UIUC Gaming collection, and experiences conducting research on African American women and film. This program will address collection management and research strategies related to popular culture collections in academic libraries. Many collections directly relate to the history of women, gender, and culture, but they involve complex issues of access and preservation. Speakers will consider questions of how academic institutions collect and maintain these materials, as well as the experience of how researchers access and use them in scholarship.
