Title:Queer Strategies in an Era of LGBT Information Abundance
Author(s):Cooper, Danielle
Subject(s):LGBT grassroots information organizations
queer theory
information grounds
library as place
the new librarianship
Abstract:This poster introduces lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) grassroots information organizations and outlines a plan for an ethnographic research project to study these organizations' current contexts. Drawing upon queer theory, information grounds, library as place and the new librarianship, this project investigates the following questions: Why and how do members utilize and develop LGBT grassroots information organizations in this era of ever- proliferating LGBT information? What are the challenges and opportunities for LGBT grassroots information organizations as they navigate different organizational models such as autonomy and institutional partnership? Do, and if so, how do queer information activities continue to take place within LGBT grassroots information organizations?
