Oxford Encyclopedia of Women in World History

The Washington and Lee University Library has acquired online access to a major new reference work, the Oxford Encyclopedia of Women in World History.
A four-volume set in printed form, this landmark work, edited by Bonnie G. Smith, contains about 1,300 signed entries covering geography and history, comparative culture and society, organizations and movements, gender studies, other topics in world history, and biographies.
W&L researchers have access from this page in the library Web site.
This encyclopedia is one of the newest online reference works recently added to the library’s collection.

Graphic Novels on Display

Leyburn Library is home to a display entitled “The Graphic Novel,” featuring a selection of books from the library’s collection chosen by Jemma Mayer, Circulation Assistant in the library. The display is located on the Main Floor lobby and will be available throughout the month of January.
What exactly is a graphic novel? For an introduction, take a look at this article from the Oxford Companion to Twentieth-Century Literature in English.
There are quite a few graphic novels in the library collection, but, unfortunately, they are not shelved together or gathered under any one subject label. In addition to the titles on display, you can find a few more by searching Annie under the Subject graphic novels.
