I was surprised though to see no reference in the catalogue to the project having a presence on the net/web.

ABC-Clio published a second volume of the bibliography in women's history, as well as the one I did. Also the Journal of Women's History has published a one-volume bibliography.

But most of the abstracting services are on-line (as is the LC catalog) and thanks to the miracle of technology, all can be searched for women's history subjects.

The Journal of Women's History includes a thematic bibliography in almost every issue (a sample of the bibliographic topics follows). The Journal also published a Guide to
Periodical Literature (Indian University Press) and is in the process of updating that guide and publishing the next volume in the next few years. Also in the works is a home page for the Journal of Women's History--it should be up and running in about a month. Meanwhile you can refer to bibliographies such as:
