This exhibition was planned in co-operation with the Women Writing and Reading and Rooms of Their Own conferences in May, 2007. Digitization was conducted over a series of weeks in 2007 in the Digital Humanities Research Studio and Bruce Peel Special Collections library on the University of Alberta campus. Materials came from the Bruce Peel Special Collections library, with additions from the private collection of Dr. Gary Kelly, the University of Alberta general collection, and the University of Alberta Archives. You can read more about the procedures, software and hardware used in the project.

Special thanks to the staff at the Bruce Peel Special Collections library, especially Jeannine Green, Robert Desmarais, and Carol Irwin, for their patience, expertise and generosity. Thanks also to the University of Alberta Archives for the loan of archival material from the Violet Archer fonds.

The exhibit will run from May 2007 - August 2007 (tentative).
