Origin

At the ALA 2012 Midwinter Meeting, the GLBT Round Table Steering Committee charged this ad hoc committee one year (January 2012 to January 2013) to assess, develop, and maintain all resources listed on Publications page of the round table web site.  The content on this page was on the Popular Resources page of our old web site.

During the November 2013 round table board meeting, the GLBTRT Resources Committee was charged as a standing committee.  The committee began work 2014 July.
