Feminist Collections

FEMINIST COLLECTIONS: A QUARTERLY OF WOMEN’S STUDIES RESOURCES (ISSN 0742-7441) reviews the latest print, electronic, and audiovisual resources for research and teaching in women’s studies. Recent book reviews have treated such subjects as women of color in academia, pregnancy in modern America, feminist evangelicalism, and girls’ studies. There are guides to new bibliographies and reference works, critiques of videos, announcements of new websites and blogs, and news of out-of-the-way materials — pamphlets, reports, rare book dealers’ catalogs, microforms, and more. Thoughtful articles by experts explore women’s publishing, Internet resources, library organization, archives, and other tools for feminist scholarship. New periodicals and special issues of journals in other disciplines are announced in each issue.

FEMINIST COLLECTIONS is part of a joint subscription with FEMINIST PERIODICALS: A CURRENT LISTING OF CONTENT and NEW BOOKS ON WOMEN, GENDER, & FEMINISM. FEMINIST COLLECTIONS is also available in fulltext from vol. 16, no. 1 (Fall 1994) in the databases GenderWatch and Contemporary Women’s Issues and is indexed in Women’s Studies International selectively from 1982-1993, completely thereafter; in Alternative Press Index from vol. 22, no. 1 (Fall 2000); and in Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts from vol. 25, no. 2 (Winter 2004).
