Women and Gender Studies Interest Group

The Women's Studies Interest Group (WSIG) was founded by Wendy Thomas (Schlesinger Library, Radcliffe College) and Alexa Mayo (Holy Cross College) in 1992 for the purpose of providing librarians interested in women's studies with an opportunity to meet, share information, and form professional networks. Our interests include collection building, instruction, reference, and resource sharing in women's studies. The WSIG sponsors field trips to women's studies collections throughout New England, as well as guest lectures by visiting scholars.
