Other Microforms Recently Received (Through the Purchase Proposal Program)

  • Bibliothek der Frauenfrage in Deutschland, Parts 1-6 (Erlangen:Fischer, 1998-)
    14,867 microfiches + printed guide. (IDC Dist.) (OCLC #43612778)

This microfiche edition (estimated 12 parts in total) will include some 7,000 titles incorporating nearly all of the titles compiled by Sveistrup and von Zahn-Harnack in their 1933 bibliography. Material that appeared before 1790 makes it possible to make a whole collection of pieces of the learned literature of the women’s and gender issues from the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries—which are extremely rare—once more easily accessible. The Bibliothek will specifically include monographs, miscellanies, and parts of periodicals which can no longer be accurately placed in their order of appearance. Thus this edition is designed to complement the set Historical Sources of Women’s Liberation Movement and Gender Issues. (from the publisher’s description)
