Women's studies and feminism has been a growing subject area since the 1960s. The increase of sources of information in this area has highlighted the need for an up-to-date guide to sources covering all the recent developments. Providing you with a guide to information sources in an area that is still unconventional and problematic, the Information Sources in Women's Studies and Feminism will give you a way through the maze of sources. This new title is not limited to traditional academic genres. Different use is made in this area of Government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) publications and more legitimacy is given to grey literature and popular literature than in other areas of the academy. Therefore, a book that treats issues of information as well as specific sources is important to researchers and activists in the area. The contents include: Archival material, serials, electronic resources, information in/from local and grassroots organizations, Government and non-government organizations documents, Collections and canonicity, Bibliographic control as naming information, Audiences with diverse interests, Lesbian sources, Information for/about women of colour, Indigenous women's information, and the Importance of information to women.
