Resources for Research on Women Writers

NOTE: The best way to find listings of electronic versions of books by women is to search the Celebration of Women Writers site (see below), edited by Mary Mark Ockerbloom, and the Online Books Page, by John Mark Ockerbloom, both mounted by the University of Pennsylvania Digital Library. Examples of various projects linked from these sites as well as other resources on women writers are listed below. There is no way to limit a search to women writers in Google Books, though if you know the author or title you are interested in, it is definitely worth trying. Another big project is the Open Library, from The Internet Archive, which does offer a way to just find books by women authors (any format) or limited to E-Texts in the project.

(A subject search for "women" turns up thousands of books in numerous subjects.)
