The Woman’s Collection has acquired many non-profit materials which are valuable to the research of women. Eighteen collections contain more than 14,870 monographs and 850 journal titles, dating back to the 1800s. Many of the microformed materials are primary resource materials such as original manuscripts, papers, letters, and diaries. Also included are alternate or small press publications, and out-of-print materials. A large number of collections deal with women’s rights, women’s suffrage and the feminist movement, and trace women’s roles in national and international society.
