NOTE ON ACCESS:

Introduction
Working with faculty and students in the departments of English, French & Italian, History & Women's Studies, Wilson Library's Electronic Text Research Center has chosen as one segment of its Women's Studies Digitization Project selected travel writings by women in the period 1830-1930. We include women travellers from and to the United States, as well as selected American and European women travellers to non-Western areas. Our project begins in 1830, so as not to conflict with the Women Writers Project at Brown University. Although not limited to the US, our decision to emphasize American travel represents an effort to complement Indiana University's Victorian Women Writers Project (which focuses on British women, 1830-1901).

Our work has two major goals:
--to support current programmatic strengths by expanding the range of research materials available;
--to help faculty and students learn more about work with digitized texts.
