The first issue of Feminist Periodicals was published in print in 1981, and the journal has gone through three iterations: initially put together using scissors, glue, and a copier; it became a PDF format in 2008, and now ten years later, it has moved from a static, unsearchable format to an Omeka digital collections site. The Omeka platform allows users to browse items, search (choosing between keyword, Boolean, and exact match in an advanced search option), and view the entire annotated list of over 150 periodicals.

If you would like to see FP issues from 1981 to 2017, please go to our institutional repository here.
