Good afternoon,

This announcement is being sent to a number of lists. Please accept our
apologies for any duplicate postings

The Library of Congress will sponsor a free, two-day symposium titled,
"Resourceful Women: Researching and Interpreting American Women's History,"
on Thursday and Friday, June 19-20, 2003.  A copy of the full program,
biographies of the speakers, online registration form, and details about a
related film series and research orientation may be found

The symposium will highlight current research in the field of American
women's history, showcase the Library's magnificent multiformat holdings,
and explore in particular the sources and methodologies being used by
academic scholars, filmmakers, journalists, theatrical performers, museum
curators, children's book authors, and others who are uncovering and
presenting the story of American women's experiences to a variety of audiences.

The symposium is free and open to the public, and seating is on a
first-come basis.  Those planning to attend are asked to complete the
registration form to assist symposium organizers in determining space and
refreshment needs.  Online registration does not guarantee seating.

The symposium caps a multiyear effort to identify and publicize the
Library's holdings in American women's history.  In December 2001, the
Library of Congress, in cooperation with the University Press of New
England, published the 456-page book titled, American Women: A Library of
Congress Guide for the Study of Women's History and Culture in the United
States.  In June 2003, a companion American Women Web site will be released
on the Library's American Memory site at .
