The Resource Center LGBT Collection: 50 Years of LGBT History in Dallas
When the producers of the upcoming film “Dallas Buyers Club” needed photos of Dallas’ gay community during the 1980s to accurately depict it on film, they turned to the UNT Libraries, which had 50 years of the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender social movements in its archives.
Items from this collection — formerly the contents of the Phil Johnson Historic Archives and Research Library at the Resource Center in Dallas — will be on display for the first time in the exhibit, “The Resource Center LGBT Collection: 50 Years of LGBT History in Dallas,” running through Jan. 2 at Archives and Rare Books, at the Willis Library, Room 437.

Have you heard of the UNT Data Repository but want to know more?
Are you anxious about the formats, rights, or privacy issues related to your dataset that might limit you from sharing it broadly?

We invite the UNT community to come and learn about our UNT Data Repository, how to prepare your data, what type of information to include, format considerations, licensing and privacy issues, and other data-related topics.
Feel free to bring your laptop and your data, or just come and join the discussion.
Coffee, apple cider, and treats will be served, so mark your calendars for December Data Day!
