Resources for ... You!

Selected books in Butler Libraries collections

How to use this Guide

Welcome to the LibGuide created for the First-Year Seminar: Women Writing the World! I'm happy to help you with your research. Please let me know when you have questions by contacting me via IM, phone, or e-mail (to the right).

The tabs above link you to the databases and resources that you may find helpful in assembling cultural and critical information for your presentation. Keep in mind while these scholarly resources are recommended, you may find great material on the open web. However, we will want to make sure we're choosing the best materials by doing some critical analysis of what we find.

In the Library

For our library assignment, you'll be looking for a resource in one of these databases and examining what you find - what it is, who wrote it, and who came before and after them in the scholarly conversation.  

The assignment is available at
