Women's History Month
The Mercer University Libraries (MUL) is proud to celebrate Women’s History Month on behalf of our students, faculty, and staff. During the month of March, we are acknowledging women in technology. Check out the list of films to watch, books to read, web resources, and the slideshow presentation streaming at Douglas (in the lobby), Henry (in the lobby), Swilley (in the library), and on the MUL’s YouTube channel.
You can also take a photo with our Women’s History Month selfie sign.
Stream the PBS documentary film titled Not Done: Women Remaking America, which is available to watch through the Mercer Library in Kanopy. Not Done examines the voices of women through various movements: Black Lives Matter, Me Too, and the Women’s March. Also, check out the Women and Society collection for more suggestions.
