Women in Development, a forthcoming digital resource ofthe University
of Florida, collects research on societal structures in Africa, Asia, Latin
America and elsewhere. These materials reflect the impact of women in
rural and urban settings. They consider issues of education, economic
growth and legal rights among other topics. The library also has many
WID publications and research materials in its collection.

Collected here are the works of scholars who have pioneered research
into women's issues in developing countries. These resources serve
as a research archive, and as a means for building infrastructure to
support women in developing societies. Women in Development 'E
digital materials will be freely available anywhere, anytime. .







Anita Spring offers matching funds for

Women in Development UF library collection


The Women in Development Program began at the University
of Florida in the mid-1980s with Anita Spring, Ph.D., as its first
director. In January 2009, she became Professor Emerita of
Anthropology and African Studies. A present focus of Dr. Spring
and her colleague Dr. Helen Safa (Professor Emerita in the UF
Center for Latin American Studies and longtime leader in research
and teaching) is the creation of a world-wide digital collection on
Women and Development (WID). This collection on social change
is in the form of e-resources of academic and agency-related
materials. It includes materials from WID scholars, advocates and
practitioners.

Dr. Spring has pledged $15,000 to initiate digital work and has
challenged others to donate as well. In addition, she has generously
agreed to match every gift above $250 donated through August 31,
2010 (up to a total of $15,000) to support the building of the Women
in Development Collection and Endowment. Funds from the
challenge grants of both Dr. Safa and Dr. Spring will form the Women
in Development endowment.

Dr. Anita Spring's
Challenge Gift

Dr. Anita Spring has
generously agreed to match
every gift above $250 given by
August 31, 2010 to support the
digitization of the Women in
Development Collection.



Your gift is tax deductible to
the extent allowed by law.


UF has long had an extraordinary
concentration of talent in the area
of WID. Scholars such as Florence
Babb, Carmen Diana Deere, Paul
and Polly Doughty, MartaHartman,
Peter Hildebrand, Della McMillan,
Sandra Russo, Marianne Schmink,
Mickey Swisher and others from a variety of disciplines have worked
in the area. So it is logical for the UF Libraries to preserve their
research materials, reports and books.

Major pioneers in the field such as Elsa Chaney, Mary Elmendorf
and Arvonne Fraser have deposited their materials in the UF
collection and other such contributions are in process.

The goal is for faculty and students from a wide array of universities
and colleges, as well as researchers and practitioners worldwide, to
take advantage of these materials for their work. It may help them
to realize how much progress Third World women have made
since 1975, when the first United Nations Decade for Women was
inaugurated. This collection focuses on achieving common goals
embracing equality and justice for all women.
