The University of Wisconsin’s College Library’s Women’s Collection

Post to Twitter

According to this site:

“…the collection provides books and videos emphasizing current women’s issues of interest to undergraduates, including the students in Women’s Studies courses. The collection includes titles about women’s health concerns and topics such as abortion, women and welfare, body image and women related family issues like childcare. Works by and about women authors, artists and musicians are collected as anthologies or criticism identified as pertaining to women’s or feminist issues. Books by or about individuals in the literary and fine arts are only selected if they are considered seminal works. Critically acclaimed lesbian fiction is included in the collection as well. Books on all these topics, which would be scattered throughout the library collection, are presented here in the Women’s Collection to encourage browsing by undergraduates seeking to expand their appreciation of women’s lives and experiences.”

The Women’s Collection homepage is here. Check out the “featured books” for Winter 2006, which are grouped under the title: “To Be Young & Feminist.”
