Women in Library History

In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Feminist Task Force of the American Library Association presents the Women of Library History project.  The project highlights valued women in libraries, past and present.

Read about the contributions of these important women in librarianship.  For example, the March 1st entry is for Jean Arnot, Australian librarian and activist for equal pay for women.  She worked for the State Library of New South Wales (formerly the Public Library of New South Wales) for over 47 years.
