New Online: “U.S. Women’s and Girls’ Magazines Web Archive”

via Columbia University Libraries:

Columbia University Libraries is pleased to announce the launch of the U.S. Women’s and Girls’ Magazines Web Archive.

Developed by librarians within the Ivy Plus Libraries Confederation, the archive consists of websites of women’s media that previously existed as print magazines and have long documented women’s thoughts, activities, economic power, sexuality, political interests, social, cultural, and domestic life. Curated by Jennifer Weintraub (Harvard University), Lee Sullivan (Harvard University), Sarah Witte (Columbia University), and Sara Howard (Princeton University), the U.S. Women’s and Girls’ Magazines Web Archive enables libraries to continue to capture and extend collections of serial publications that document women’s lives and culture.
