Free access to the Orlando textbase during Women’s History Month

Thanks to Cambridge University Press, the Orlando textbase is free again 1-31 March, to mark Women’s History Month. 

The Orlando Project - Women’s Writing in the British Isles from the Beginnings to the Present, is a textbase for research and discovery. It explores and harnesses the power of digital tools and methods to advance feminist literary scholarship. As a new kind of history of women's writing, it seeks to further the study and understanding of literature, focusing particularly on the part women have played in its development.
