CDL is pleased to announce that Women and Social Movements has been licensed systemwide.  This new database of full text materials serves as a resource for students and scholars of U.S. history and U.S. women’s history. Organized around the history of women in social movements in the U.S., it contains the following:

  • 59 document projects that interpret and present documents, most of which are not otherwise available online. Each document project poses an interpretive question and provides a collection of documents that address the question.  Altogether these document projects provide more than 1,600 documents, 600 images, and over 600 links to other web sites.
  • 20,000 pages of documents pertaining to Women and Social Movements.  These materials have been selected by the Editors for their relevance.
  • A dictionary of social movements and organizations.
  • A chronology of U.S. Women’s History.
  • Teaching Tools with lesson ideas and document-based questions related to the document projects.

Women and Social Movements is a welcome addition to UC’s collection of resources from Alexander Street Press.  It can be accessed at: Jane Faulkner (UCSB) will serve as the CDL Resource Liaison.
