Bear Briefs: March 13

Baylor University Libraries and Baylor department of women’s and gender studies will unveil the new Baylor Women’s Collection site at 3 p.m. on Thursday at Armstrong Browning Library. The unveiling will go along with a reception and a panel discussion titled “Sharing Her Story,” which will highlight women featured in Baylor’s library collections and discuss why it is important to preserve women’s stories. Director of Women’s and Gender Studies Dr. Lisa Shaver said many of the women in the collection broke important barriers at Baylor. “Too often women’s contributions are overlooked,” Shaver said. “And I think this collection will make these women more visible.”
