Alexandria Library, Special Collections: Guide to Women's History Resources

Guide to Women's History Resources

VF People-Unidentified VF People-Groups 1991-1 VF People-Wren VF People-Smith Davis Collection 41

This document is designed to be an update of the article "Women's History at Lloyd House," which appeared in the Fireside Sentinel in March 1991. Since that time, Special Collections has acquired several new manuscript collections, many new books, and other materials that help illuminate the experiences of Southern women, especially those from Virginia. Although this guide is not meant to be exhaustive, it is intended to show patrons some of our newer resources in order to help them begin their research.

Since the focus of this guide is women's history, resources which focus on the broader topic of gender, dealing with both men and women, have largely been excluded. However, many of the resources that treat the issue of gender also have information pertinent to the study of women's history. These items, along with many items acquired before 1991, may also be of interest. Please check the library catalog and our Online Collection Guides for related materials.
