Discovering American Women's History Online: New features, New URL



The web address for Discovering American Women’s History Online has changed to:

A really nice new feature is that RSS feeds alert users to new records in the database. Users can view these on the website and/or subscribe to the RSS feed.

Other key features:
*Descriptions/links to more than 600 digital collections of primary sources.
*Quick access to basic and advanced searches on every page
*Options for browsing by subject (300+ subject headings), place, time period, and primary source type
*Options for narrowing search results by subject, time period, place, and primary source type

Please update links/bookmarks to the new site if you have links to the previous version of the site:  http://library.mtsu.edu/digitalprojects/womenshistory.php
This previous version has fewer features, about 60 fewer records, and will be replaced with an automatic link to the new site in another month or so.

Please email me (ken.middlet@gmail.com) if you know of relevant digital collections that are not covered in the database, or of other ways to improve the site.
