New Guide to Women's History Research in Archives

An online guide to women's history research is now available through the University of Wisconsin's library research guides. Link to it directly here


Or find it under History-General and Gender/Sexuality/Women's Studies in the library research guides.

The guide is designed for new and intermediate archival researchers and includes lists of women's archives, tips for finding women's history materials in archives or online and an introduction to archival research. I created the guide as part of a practicum at the University of Wisconsin's Women's Studies Librarians' Office. My hope is that the guide will help ease the steep learning curve that accompanies the switch from libraries to archives, will promote women's archives and will help researchers find hidden women's history collections.

Please comment if you know of a women's archive I missed and feel free to link to the guide.
