The month of March is Women’s History Month and, to celebrate, the DALNET office has created a new online collection called the “Distinguished American Women Collection.” It includes 90 freely accessible online books written by a variety of American women, from the 1830s to the 1920s, both fiction and non-fiction. Members may include the collection in their online catalogs. Some authors in the collection are Jane Addams, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ida Wells-Barnett, Sojourner Truth, Edith Wharton, Helen Keller, Margaret Sanger, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. To view the entire collection, visit: http://tinyurl.com/DAmWoCo. The office used “The Book of Distinguished American Women” by Vincent Wilson, Jr. and Gale S. McClung to help select titles and authors.
