In honor of Women's Herstory month, Axinn Library highlights a resource containing primary accounts of the role of women in social movements in the United States from 1600-2000. This database includes 53,000 pages of full text sources and 5,000 additional pages are added on average each year. It includes a chronology of U.S. Women's history which is useful to put movements and events into context. The Scholar's Edition, which is the version licensed by the Library, also includes 90,000 pages of publications of federal, state, and local government Commissions convened on topics related to women's issues. There is also a five-volume biographical dictionary, Notable American Women (1971-2004).
