Wanderground Research Project 2021-2022 – A Summary of the Findings

Between April 2021 – Jan. 2022, with a mini-grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, Lesbrarian Mev Miller had been researching the viability of creating Wanderground – a Lesbian Archive/Library located in Rhode Island. The research primarily focused on this goal:

To assess the specific interest and enthusiasm of RI Lesbians to contribute to and use a locally-based archive of Lesbian publications and memorabilia. This research will guide the long-term development of Wanderground as collaborative and welcoming Lesbian-centered community-archive space welcoming to diverse communities.

Here are the research summaries:
