Women's History Month -- Learn More about American History

American Women through Time (created by Ken Middleton, a reference librarian at Middle Tennessee State University Library) provides "two approaches for the study of specific time periods in American women's history."
  • Timelines in each section link to "specific events with relevant online sources, such as diaries and letters, photograph collections, and lectures by historians."
  • The sections offer guides "to research sources that are appropriate for the specified time period." Categories included advertising, historical statistics, newspapers, and quilts.

This easy-to-use, informative site offers access to interesting, wide-ranging information about American Women.
