The University of Massachusetts has recently digitized their first contribution to the Five College Archives Digital Access Project focusing on the history of women's education (see the September 25, 1998 Scout Report
). The site includes transcripts of selected oral history spanning this century taken from University of Massachusetts alumni, former faculty, and administrators; selected records relating to the administration of women's education at the University of Massachusetts; faculty papers; class photographs; and perhaps most interestingly to those examining cultural attitudes in women's education, the Student Government Association's Handbooks for Women, 1929-1941; and Student Handbooks, 1890-1950. The other four colleges's digitized materials can be accessed from this page as well.
