Many publishers group new works under a series title, and therefore identifying a useful series may lead to other volumes
on related topics. The subject index in Books in Series (see below) directs researchers both to recent scholarly monographs on women and to published primary sources. Examples of
Women & Children First, which has thirty-seven titles, mostly reprints of association and government reports and statistics
Women in America: From Colonial Times to the 20th Century, with more than fifty reprinted titles, often pamphlets
Women in American History, thirty-four monographs and growing, with biographies and works on social and labor movements
Relevant series that do not specifically focus on women include the Black Heritage Library Collection (more than four hundred
reprints, many literary) and American Trails (two series with accounts of overland journeys).

Also, look for a “series” name when examining the full record of a book on your topic. The Library's online catalog can be
searched easily by series title in the “Guided Keyword” search method.
