Good morning,

I received the following information this morning. I have not had
time to do more than a cursory examination, but it appears to offer
some good resources.

15. Women in American History by the Encyclopaedia Britannica

The editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica Online have put together this
collection of biographical information on women in American history
from 1600 to the present. Biographies can be browsed alphabetically or
by occupational category. A quasi-subject listing called "misc. a-z"
lists entries for women's organizations and issues. The site can also
be browsed chronologically by using the four time periods displayed at
the top: Early America 1600-1820, The Nineteenth Century 1820-1880, At
the Crossroads 1880-1920, and Modern America, 1920-the present. Some
entries are accompanied by pictures; a media gallery includes sound
and QuickTime videos. Note that it is unknown how long this resource
will be freely available. [DS]
