About the Archive

The June L. Mazer Lesbian Archive at UCLA is an outreach and collection-building partnership between the June L. Mazer Lesbian Archives and the UCLA Library. These collections expand the pool of primary source materials available to researchers and to the community at large.

The partnership grew out of a project initiated by the UCLA Center for the Study of Women to inventory, organize, preserve, and digitize several of Mazerís key Los Angeles-themed collections.
