1. NEWS
A. WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH
As the University celebrates Women's History Month, we'd like to remind you
of several new information sources that might be helpful. For more
information on Fogler's holdings in Women's Studies, please contact Nancy
Lewis on FirstClass or 581-3613.

2. DATABASES
A. WOMEN'S STUDIES-RELATED DATABASES
Contemporary Women's Issues is a multidisciplinary, full-text database that
brings together relevant content from mainstream periodicals, gray
literature, and the alternative press -- with a focus on the critical issues
and events that influence women's lives in more than 190 countries.
Contemporary Women's Issues includes English-language titles from East and
West Africa, Asia, and South and Central America, the Caribbean, North
America and Europe. From the Fogler Library homepage
(http://library.umaine.edu) click on "Search in a Database."

Another database, American National Biography, includes people from all eras
who have influenced and shaped American history and culture. It includes
profiles of more than 18,000 men and women from all walks of American life,
from the well-known to the infamous to the obscure. The database offers
searching in the Women's History Special Collection by selecting that subset
on the search screen.
