The following is a list of potential resources for promoting Women & Gender Studies-related publications, projects, and awards. Not all venues are suitable for every project, but these are all places to which authors and organizations have successfully sent out announcements of new resources.
I. Electronic discussion lists, forums, and websites:
- ACRL Women & Gender Studies Section (WGSS) Newsletter: http://www.libr.org/WSS/newsletter/index.html
The newsletter is published twice a year, and frequently highlights new projects of relevance to Women's Studies scholarship.
- FEMINIST Discussion List: http://libr.org/FTF/ftflist.html
From the ACRL Social Responsibilities Round Table's Feminist Task Force, this list encourages "discussion of feminism as it applies to librarianship and that members will share their concerns about work, education, collection building, professional literature, and issues of primary concern to women in our field."
- H-Women: http://www.h-net.org/~women/
H-Women is one of the many discussion networks within the H-Net site. The forum is focused on the history of women, and is frequented by scholars, teachers and librarians. See also the H-Minerva (women and war/military issues) and H-SAWH (women and gender in the U.S. South) networks linked from the H-Women page.
- "Second Wave" and Beyond: http://www.h-net.org/announce/show.cgi?ID=155262
This site provides access to an electronic discussion forum focusing on topics specific to teaching and research in women's history. The site also includes links to visual materials, book reviews, original memoirs and oral histories, chronologies, bibliographies, and research and teaching resources. Alexander Street Press hosts the site.
II. Periodicals (contact current editorial staff to see if they are willing to publish a new resource announcement)
