NOTES

This workshop brings together researchers and educators as users of resources - including archives, libraries, women’s organizations, distribution and exhibition outlets, databases and websites.

Its focus:

• what we want the Network to do
• how resource holders, researchers and educators use current resources
• what they might need of the Network
• what, in the light of identified needs, it is economically and practically feasible and
sustainable for the Network to do
