Women's History Month: Academy of Art University Library Resources

A quick introduction to resources at the Academy of Art Library related to women's history and women artists.


Every year March is designated Women’s History Month by Presidential proclamation. The month is set aside to honor women’s contributions in American history. The Academy of Art Library has curated this page of online library resources related to women's history and women artists. We've included photograph collections, e-books, streaming video, digital magazine articles, and more. If you have any questions, or need help finding additional resources, feel free to reach out to Debra Sampson, Library Director, for assistance.

If you are prompted to login to these resources, use your First and Last Name with a space in between, and your student ID number.
