New Resource Guide on Women in Astronomy at the Astronomical Society of the Pacific Website
An updated, expanded resource guide to the role women have played and are playing in the development of astronomy is now available on the web-site of the non-profit Astronomical Society of the Pacific: http://www.astrosociety.org/education/resources/womenast_bib.html
The guide includes both printed and web-based materials, and has general references on the topic plus specific references to the work and lives of 32 women astronomers of the past and present. All the materials are at the non-technical level and thus appropriate for student papers, curriculum development, or personal enrichment.
The guide makes reference to 178 different web resources, as well as books and articles that are either in print or found in many larger libraries.
This resource guide is part of a series that can be found on the Society’s web-site, on such topics as the astronomy of many cultures, debunking astronomical pseudo-science, and resources for astronomy education.
