_Women and Social Movements in the United States, 1600-2000_ (WASM) has been publishing as an online journal/database/website for four years now and this past year expanded with a new WASM Scholar's Edition. We are in the midst of publishing installments of a new database that we are integrating into the Scholar's Edition, "Publications of Commissions on the Status of Women, 1963-2004." We have posted online 60,000 of what we will ultimately be 80,000 pages of reports, pamphlets, flyers and other publications of all local and state commissions on the status of women. The new material will be fully integrated into the site's database and search engine by this summer. Also exciting is our plan, to add, in time for the Berkshire Conference, an online, indexed and searchable version of the classic biographical dictionary, Notable American Women (5 vols., 1971-2004). The Scholar's Edition is available to libraries by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
To publicize these new developments, the Women and Social Movements website is sponsoring a luncheon at the upcoming annual meeting of the Organization of American Historians in New York. It will be 11:30-1:00, Friday, March 28, in the Petit Trianon Room of the Hilton. The luncheon is free, but seats are limited so you will need to sign up in advance. To reserve a seat, please email email@example.com.
We expect that the addition of these two new databases to Women and Social Movements will be of interest to many subscribers to H-Women and we look forward to discussing these developments further at the luncheon in New York City.
