UWM WOMEN AUTHORS:
Take Our Daughters to Work Day
April 1995, April 1996, April 1997
As we demonstrate for our daughters the work that we do and introduce them to the broad spectrum of careers open to them for their futures during Take Our Daughters To Work Day, it is fitting that the Golda Meir Library highlight the scholarly activities and professional contributions of UWM women faculty and staff. An exhibit featuring books by UWM women was on view on the main floor of the library April 24 through April 30, 1996. The books on display, drawn entirely from the UWM Authors Collection housed in Special Collections on the fourth floor, are representative of the range of fields, activities, and publishing efforts pursued by the university's women employees. The breadth of their intellectual accomplishments demonstrates the significance of their contributions to this institution as leaders, teachers, scholars, researchers, colleagues, and friends
Publications by women in the UWM Authors Collection represent a small example of the rich resources available at the Golda Meir Library for exploring career opportunities and for studying women's lives, issues, and history. For example, the depth of collections and resources relating to women at the library was also demonstrated in "Selections from the Nursing History Collection," another library exhibit that was on display in the Special Collections Reading Room on the fourth floor.
UWM Women Authors was prepared by the staff of the Archives and Special Collections Department. The Golda Meir Library staff are pleased to participate in Take Our Daughters To Work Day in offering encouragement and direction for our young women's futures. It is no accident that the name of this library commemorates the memory of a woman whose life and career so profoundly affected the course of human destiny.
