The Online Collection
Developed By Scholars
March is Women’s History Month, which means throughout the month HEB will highlight premiere titles in Women’s Studies that can be found in our collection. If you would like a Women’s Studies specific title list from HEB, please email Chris Plattsmier. Also, don’t forget you can recommend a title for inclusion in the HEB collection on our title recommendation page.


For our final entry into the Women’s History Month series, we created a gallery below which displays selections from the HEB collection related to women in science and medicine. These titles serve as strong examples of interdisciplinary, humanities scholarship that shed light on issues in the STEM and public-health world. Don’t forget to explore our Pinterest board for titles in Science & Technology or Medicine & Medical History for a more expansive selection of titles.
