Weaving Women's Lives


Selected Bibliographies compiled for the University of South Carolina Thirteenth Annual Women's Studies Conference, February 24-25, 2000

Each year the WWW grows bigger with more and more sites added to choose from. As soon as any list is published the URL or web address may be taken down and the information will no longer be available where you thought it would be. Another aspect is that web sites sit forgotten and unattended. The information grows old and out-dated, yet are presented in the same way the latest sites with current information are. Only through carefully checking can you determine which category any particular site falls into. To the best of my ability I've tried to pick sites that will have some 'permanence and credibility' on the web. If the address given isn't responding, try shortening the address or try doing a web search for the title given.

If you aren't familiar with using the Web, Thomas Cooper Library offer classes in beginning and advanced searching of the Web or arrangements can be made to have someone come to your office. The schedule is available on the USC Training page - University Libraries http://training.csd.sc.edu/tcl/tcl.htm
