Happy Women’s History Wednesday! As we near the end of 2013, I have a few programming notes to share about WoLH:
- we have finished posting everything that was submitted during our Call for Submissions in March! If you submitted a post before our March 25th deadline and you haven’t seen it yet, please e-mail me (womenoflibraryhistory at gmail) so I can investigate.
- as of this writing, we have 444 followers, which seems auspicious! We’ve also received comments via e-mail and Facebook as folks see librarians they remember from their own pasts. If you have a favourite post or have seen an old friend on the blog, we’d love to hear about it!
- today, we’ll feature another reblog from My Daguerreotype Librarian, our librarian-history Tumblr friends. Next week, I hope you’ll indulge me as I share a story from my own community. After that, we’ll probably turn down the lights a bit until next year. An index and some highlights from this year’s posts are also forthcoming.
- if you are interested in helping with next year’s project, or if you have ideas for the future of Women of Library History, please get in touch via e-mail (womenoflibraryhistory at gmail). We would also love to see you at the Feminist Task Force meetings at Midwinter in Philadelphia—I’ll post more schedule information as that gets closer.
It’s been a real joy to hear everyone’s stories and share them with the world of Tumblr and the Internet at large this year. Thank you all for submitting and listening!
This is a great project that I’ve learned a lot from—follow along.
I love that Women’s History Wednesday is a thing now. Way to go IWA!
