The directory contains information on a wide variety of women's information centres and
services throughout the world, including details of the collection or documentation they
provide, as well as addresses and the name of a contact person for each organization.
These services are divided into the following geographical areas: Africa (South of
Sahara); Asia and the Pacific; Central and South America; Europe (Eastern); Europe
(Western); Middle East and North Africa; and finally, North America. For easy reference,
there are two indexes: an alphabetical index of organizational titles and a geographical
index by country.The directory overlaps the database on the Mapping the World' website of the
International Information Centre and Archives for the Women´s Movement (IIAV).
The bibliography contains some 75 references to a selection of books, journal articles,
book chapters, conference papers and electronic articles dealing with women's information,
networks, and information and communication technologies (ICTs). Each record is
complemented by an abstract. Some of the references are only available as unpublished
documents on the Web. Where this is the case, the URL or website address is given as part
of the reference. The bibliography is followed by a list of World Wide Web resources,
which provide access to additional information on women's organizations, women and ICTs,
gender studies, newsletters, and journals.
