March is National Women’s History Month. To celebrate the role of women in history and to coincide with the Women in Leadership Forum on March 27, the University Library is pleased to announce three special projects.

  1. The publications and creative works of Regent Women faculty will be recognized in an online bibliography being compiled from faculty web sites and curriculum vitae. We will be happy to add additional publications and creative works through March 31, 2010. Please contact Amber Wood at ambesmi@regent.edu with any corrections or items you would like to see added. Click here to access the bibliography.
  2. Selected and representative items from the bibliography will be used in an exhibit located in the display cases in the front of the library. The exhibit will be ready for viewing next week and will include much more than books and articles. Come by to see some amazing sparkling awards!
  3. We are pleased to inform you about a month of free access to Women and Social Movements in the US 1600-2000, Scholars Edition. Alexander Street Press offers the following explanation of this resource: “A mainstay of women’s history scholarship and teaching in universities worldwide… This extensive collection of primary historic documents, books, images, scholarly essays, teaching tools, and book and Web site reviews documents the history of women’s activism in public life, and is one of the most heavily visited resources for women’s studies and for U.S. history on the Web. Organized around document projects written by leading scholars, the collection is a powerful research and classroom tool designed to help users develop the skills needed to analyze primary documents and conduct research.” Click here to access this outstanding resource.
