Historical NoteReturn to Top

In fall of 1974, the Washington State University Women’s Center open on campus in the Compton Union Building. Their goal was to provide a place where students, staff, and faculty could gather in a non-sexist environment. They initially offered a lending library, resources for locating and selecting local medical, social, and professional support, and hosted series of speakers and programming. In fall of 1988, it was combined with the Office of Programs for Women and reconstituted as the Women’s Resource and Research Center. In 1993 it was renamed Women’s Resource Center.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The collection consists of video recordings (VHS tapes) created on, or related to, the Washington State University campuses. These were originally created or collected by the Women’s Resource Center and retained in their own library for checkout by students, staff, and faculty.

The materials generally relate to “women’s issues,” and most are presentations made on campus by faculty or others. Subjects include sexual equality, sexism, sexual assault or harassment, abortion, privilege, and feminism, among many others. A few instructional materials and/or class recordings are included.

Administrative InformationReturn to Top


Videotapes are organized chronologically. In cases where the date is unknown or approximate, those materials are filed at the end of their approximate possible date range. In cases where an obvious series of recordings existed and chronological filing would interrupt that, the interrupting materials were placed either before or after that series.

Acquisition Information

Materials from the Washington State University Women’s Resource Center were transferred to the WSU Libraries’ Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections by Amy Sharp, WSRC Director, on November 15, 2017, and retained as UA2017-12.

Processing Note

During processing, materials produced by non-WSU institutions were transferred to the WSU Libraries proper, to be added to the stacks or surplussed as appropriate. Materials which appeared to be copyright violations (secondhand recordings of materials for which someone else holds the copyright) were discarded. The collection was processed by University Archivist Mark O’English in November, 2017.

Separated Materials

Approximately 125 slides of general campus events in the mid 1970s and of an April 1990 Northwest Women’s Studies Association Conference held in Pullman were removed to the general WSU photograph collections.
