New Directions in Knowledge About Women and Gender


Selected Bibliographies compiled for the University of South Carolina
Fourteenth Annual Women's Studies Conference, February 22-23, 2001

The Web is firmly a part of our lives. We have information everywhere we turn. Some of it is good, and some of it is downright dangerous. For this web bibliography I've tried to find some sites that will compliment the theme for this year's conference. Since web sites can be very fleeting, as soon as any list is published, the URL or web address may be taken down and the information will no longer be available at the address given. Web Browsers can be helpful in finding the new address or ones of equal value. Some times all you need or want are some starting points and a look that catches your eye. I've tried to provide some of both in this web bibliography.

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://www.sc.edu/library/pubserv/tbones/index.html
