Collaborative planning for the preservation and digitization of the Gay Alliance of Genesee Valley’s collection of oral histories, radio programs, photographs, videotapes, newsletters, and corporate papers, as well as a pilot project to digitize 174 audio and video oral history interviews recorded for the Shoulders to Stand On documentary and 33 audio recordings of the Gay Liberation Front’s “Green Thursday” radio program.

The University of Rochester River Campus Libraries and the Gay Alliance of Genesee Valley plan a joint pilot using a subset of a cultural heritage historical collection related to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights movement in Rochester, NY. Beginning with the "Shoulders To Stand On" oral histories and "Green Thursday" radio program, collaborators will conduct and evaluate pilot activities, such as transcribing, closed-captioning, and creating metadata for the material. The partnership offers a wealth of documentation on the Gay Movement's history, along with the technical/curatorial infrastructure to preserve and disseminate previously hidden archives. A strategic plan for the sustainable preservation and access of this rich collection in its entirety will result from the pilot, contributing to an inclusive history of the struggle for civil rights with hitherto undisclosed LGBT materials that will interest scholars, students, and the public.

Preparation for print and digital publication of six volumes of medieval literary texts (13th to 15th centuries) and implementation of an updated digital interface to enhance and expand user access. (36 months)

The Middle English Text Series (METS) is now in its 29th year of providing affordable and open-access critical editions of medieval texts for researchers and students. Ninety-five volumes have been published as of fall 2019. This proposal requests funding to support the print and digital publication of 6 volumes, and implementation of a re-designed digital edition to enhance and expand user access, support, and interaction. The primary purpose of METS is to make available for scholarly use critical editions of the textual tradition of medieval Britain. The focus of this project is upon vernacular texts from the 13th to the early-16th centuries that move beyond the ‘canonical’ authors, expanding our understanding of and access to the multilingual and multicultural culture of a vibrant and global British Isles. With its digital and print editions, the series has a global reach and influence, with users from the U.K., France, Italy, and Germany to China, Korea, India, and Australia.
