Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition


Materials were donated as 2 boxes of mixed materials with no original order, so a structure was imposed by the archivist.
The donation also included a number of serials and published materials such as LesbiaNews, Tapestry, Images: West Kootenay Women’s Paper, Lavender Rhinoceros, and Lesbian Connection which were separated from the accession to be catalogued into the main library collection.
