WSAM-International Call for Primary Sources

Thomas Doblin and Kathryn Sklar are looking for resources that they can add to their new Women and Social Movements-International Database. Please contact Tom or Kitty, if you have any sources you can contribute:

For a large digital archive project, “Women and Social Movements, International, 1840-2010,” we seek copies of the following proceedings of meetings of international women’s organizations. The archive will be co-published by the Center for the Historical Study of Women and Gender and Alexander Street Press beginning in fall 2010.

The database will eventually include 150,000 pages of primary material related to women and social movements internationally. About 50-60,000 of these pages will consist of lengthy runs of proceedings published by various women’s organizations. We have identified about 600
proceedings of women’s international organizations. Of these we have found copies of about 400 for scanning and inclusion in the database.

These remaining 95 continue to elude us. Can you help us find these rare items in your library or repository? We would be very grateful for any leads you can offer. Thank you in advance.
