Women's Studies Database

The University of Maryland Women’s Studies Database, begun in September 1992, serves those people interested in the women’s studies profession and in general women’s issues. Designed in collaboration with researchers, program administrators and information specialists in women’s studies, the database contains links to bibliographies, announcements, conferences and calls for papers, and other references relevant to the discipline. MITH retains an archived version of the site, with full knowledge that many more resources and programs have come into existence since the time of its creation. However, in the early 00s, the resource was unique in the specificity of its objective to support further growth and institutionalization of women’s studies programs.
