How to search the database
Determine appropriate search type and select it using the drop down list, enter terms into the search box, then click on the search button. Search type options are author (name of person in the collection), call number (manuscript number), item types (e.g. diary, autobiography, letters, biography, etc.), birth and death dates, coverage dates, and keyword limited to the biography or to the abstract or in any field. All the women who have an entry in the database are listed in the “browse by author” drop down list.
