The Feminist and Lesbian Periodical Collection contains 482 lesbian and feminist periodical titles including 36 Oregon titles and 31 international titles. The entire collection spans from 1932 to 1997 and 80 percent with titles covering the 1970s. There are 81 titles in this collection which include the first issue published. The majority of periodicals in this collection were collected and donated by Ruth and Jean Mountaingrove of Wolf Creek, Oregon.

This collection is intended as a general beginning point for research and does not contain certain titles which are noted as key works in lesbian and gay history such as: The Ladder, Just Out, etc. due to their availability. This collection does not duplicate holdings in the UO Libraries for feminist and lesbian topics. A complete box and folder listing is located in Special Collections.

This collection may be searched by title, earliest date in this collection, and state-city of publication. First through last issues indicate periodicals available in this collection and do not necessarily contain all issues published. Also included are blurbs from some periodicals describing their focus and/or content.
