IHLIA Open Up! has collected and digitized about 95,000 pages of LGBT documents associated with the CESE Europe region which otherwise would never be findable, visible and retrievable. To make it findable, visible and retrievable we have made a distinction between Organisational archives, Grey literature, Periodicals and Posters.
Organisational archives: IHLIA Open Up! keeps an extensive collection of organisational archives: magazines, newspapers or journals and conference papers, leaflets, advocacy letters, newsletters, meeting minutes and press releases from several national and international LGBT organisations.
Grey Literature: IHLIA Open Up! keeps an extensive collection of grey literature composed of material that has been digitized from organisations (books, serials, pamphlets and leaflets and includes government publications, conference reports, discussion papers, working papers and a wide range of other material) across CESE Europe and is organised geographically.
Periodicals: IHLIA Open Up! keeps an extensive collection of periodicals that has been digitized from organisations across CESE Europe and is organised geographically.
Posters: IHLIA Open Up! keeps an extensive collection of posters that has been digitised from IHLIA and are organised by theme
