The Digital Humanities Project “GWonline, the Bibliography, Filmography and Webography on Gender, War and the Western World since 1600” is now open for the public: http://gwc.unc.edu/welcome. Public launch on April 21, 2017 with the workshop “What is Digital Humanities?”. For more information click here.
GWonline, the Bibliography and Filmography on “Gender, War and the Western World since 1600” collects and organizes secondary literature, women’s autobiographies, films and informative websites on this subject to make them available to the public. Alongside full text searching, it allows users to explore the collections of curated sources through multiple entry points: author or director, publication or release date, collection, major wars, countries and regions or keywords. The website allows users to download full lists of included secondary literature, autobiographies, films and websites as RTF files.
The literature search screens are equipped with an OPEN URL feature, a standardized link that carries citation information. It allows users to check whether articles, books, etc. are available in their local libraries. When a user clicks on this link, the information it contains is sent to a library’s URL Resolver (aka link server), which then looks through the library’s subscriptions to determine if the institution has purchased the full text of the resource and where it can be found.
GWonline is connected to the Oxford Handbook on Gender, War and the Western World since 1600 edited by Karen Hagemann (General Editor), Dirk Bönker, Stefan Dudink and Sonya Rose (Oxford and New York: Oxford University Press, 2018).
