Subject: [SEROLIST:1671] Exhbition on the Rise and Response to the A=
IDS Epidemic at UCSF Library


Beginning November 25, the UCSF Library will host a=
n exhibition from the National Library of Medicine that explores the rise o=
f AIDS in the early 1980s and the evolving response to
the epidemic over the last 30 years.  

Surviving and Thriving: AIDS, Politics, and Cul=

This banner exhibition utilizes a variety of histor=
ic photographs, pamphlets, and publications to illustrate how a group of pe=
ople responded, or failed to respond, to HIV/AIDS. The
title Surviving and Thrivi=
 comes from=
a book written in 1987 by and for people with AIDS that insisted people
could live with AIDS, not just die from it. Jennifer Brier, the exhibition=
curator, explains that “centering the experience of people with AIDS=
in the exhibition allows us to see how critical they were, and continue to=
be, in the political and medical fight
against HIV/AIDS.” S=
urviving and Thriving
presents their stories alongside those of others involved in the
national AIDS crisis. For more information, view the official exhi=
bition website.

UCSF AIDS History Project: Documenting the Epid=

The UCSF Archives and Special Collections organized=
a companion exhibit that showcases materials from the AIDS
History Project (AHP)
. The AHP began in 1987 as a joint effort =
of historians, archivists, AIDS activists, health care providers, and other=
s to secure historically significant resources of the response to the AIDS =
crisis in San Francisco. This collection
includes selected records from numerous AIDS-related agencies and communit=
y-based organizations in the Bay Area, diaries from AIDS activists, papers =
of clinicians, health care workers, and researchers working at SFGH and UCS=
F, as well as materials collected
by social scientists and journalists. AHP continues to grow and its collec=
tions remain the most heavily used among Archives’ manuscript holdings.
