Sheffield Libraries, Archives & Local Studies have been nominated for an award for "support and positive contribution to Sheffield's Lesbian and Gay Community'. This is to reflect their work with a number of partners on an LGBT History Source Guide (one of the largest such guides from a local authority archive and library service in the country), for giving talks to the Spring Out conference, the SCC LGBT Officer Group and the Sheffield PCT Officer Group and for their work in actively acquiring material to add to collections to help ensure that they reflect the diverse makeup of the city.
The award will be made at the annual 'Spring Out' LGB community event in June, which is organised by the Centre for HIV and Sexual Health and SHOUT! with the aim of providing people with the opportunity to take part in discussions and workshops which promote the health and well being of LGB communities across the Sheffield area.
