WSS Annual Conference 2009 Program


Gaming, Film, and Ephemera: Women’s Studies and Academic Collections
Monday, July 13, 2009
8:00-8:30: WSS Awards Presentation
8:30-12:00: WSS Program
Location: McCormick Place West W-192b


The panel addressed mixed archival collections at the Schlesinger Library, the UIUC Gaming collection, and experiences conducting research on African American women and film. This program addressed collection management and research strategies related to popular culture collections in academic libraries. Many collections directly relate to the history of women, gender, and culture, but they involve complex issues of access and preservation. Speakers considered questions of how academic institutions collect and maintain these materials, as well as the experience of how researchers access and use them in scholarship.




The Research Committee of the Women's Studies Section also hosted a Poster Session during our General Membership Meeting.
