Online Manuscript Resources in Southern Women's History


Online Manuscript Resources in Southern Women’s History is a collection of digitized manuscript, printed, and visual materials drawn from the collections at the Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL) in the Robert W. Woodruff Library at Emory University. The purpose of this site is to provide online access to selected manuscript resources in MARBL’s collections and to increase awareness of MARBL’s collections in Southern and women’s history. The materials compiled and presented here span over a century of history and include topics such as women’s suffrage, beauty culture, women and socialism, and civil rights. This site also offers selected "teaching moments" that situate materials from disparate collections under a common theme and provide additional historical context, sample discussion questions, and resources for further research.

Although the majority of this material is in the public domain, some content may be protected under copyright and is only intended for research and instructional use under the fair use provisions of U.S. Copyright Law (Title 17, United States Code). MARBL may have information on copyright owners in our EUCLID records, finding aids, and donor records. The nature of these collections may make copyright difficult or impossible to determine. The proper use of this information ultimately rests with the user.
