    Women's Magazine Archive Database

    For the second half of Women's History Month, we're highlighting Women's Magazine Archive database, which is comprised of the backfiles of leading women's interest consumer magazines. Coverage ranges from the late-19th century through to 2005 and these key primary sources permit the examination of the events, trends, and attitudes of this period. Among the research fields served by this material are gender studies, social history, economics/marketing, media, fashion, politics, and popular culture. Title include Redbook, Chatelaine, and Good Housekeeping. 

    This database is available to all current CWU students, faculty, and staff to access in the library or from any location using CWU identification credentials. Community members may use this resource in the Brooks Library at the first floor public access computers.

    Laptops Available for Checkout

    In response to CWU’s adjustments to face-to-face class sessions and with the closure of the library, we have a limited collection of laptops available for students to check out for the Spring Quarter. These laptops are on a first come, first served basis, and are available at the Brooks Library Circulation Desk.

    Because the library is closed, we ask that students in need of a laptop make an appointment by emailing Be sure to include your name and phone number. Please note: These pick-up appointments will start April 8, 2020.
