In partnership with SUNY Binghamton’s Center for the Historical Study of Women and Gender, Alexander Street today announced that one of their most popular online resources, Women and Social Movements in the United States 1600-2000, Scholar’s Edition, will be freely accessible for the month of March so that all librarians, students, instructors, and scholars can explore the site’s rich collection of primary materials and teaching tools without passwords or fees. The URL is http://wass.alexanderstreet.com
Named a Best Reference Database of the year by Library Journal and an Outstanding Academic Title for the year by CHOICE Academic Reviews, Women and Social Movements has garnered numerous awards and wide recognition, and is one of the most heavily visited women’s studies sites online. Ordinarily accessible only to faculty and students at subscribing colleges and universities, the collection includes primary materials such as diaries, letters, photographs, and pamphlets and makes them cross-searchable together with scholarly essays, commentaries, bibliographies, and other important reference and secondary materials in what is the most comprehensive documentation of women’s activism in public life to date. New content is added to the site semi-annually.
To access Women and Social Movements, visit http://wass.alexanderstreet.com before April 1, 2010.
