Women and Social Movements in the United States published its first two online document projects in December 1997, work that grew out of courses taught by Kathryn Kish Sklar at SUNY Binghamton. From that modest beginning the website has expanded steadily. We have published new resources quarterly beginning in March 2004 and in 2009 we shifted to publishing document projects and archives, book and website reviews, and teaching tools twice a year. We have established an editorial board of respected scholars in U.S. Women's History who will play a major role in the peer review of prospective document projects.

Professors Sklar and Dublin are stepping down as WASM editors and this will be the last issue that they have edited. Judy Tzu-chun Wu of UC Irvine and Rebecca J. Plant of UC San Diego are taking over as the new editors. They can be reached at j.wu@uci.edu and rplant@ucsd.edu respectively.

We invite prospective contributors to the journal to contact the new editors to discuss possible document projects. We have prepared a guide for submissions, which offers suggestions for developing a document project. If you would be interested in reviewing books for the journal, and for website reviews, contact the incoming book review editors, Katherine Marino and Donna Schuele.

Subscriptions to the website and its journal are available for school, academic and public libraries from Alexander Street. Rates on a sliding scale reflect the size and budget of the library. Thirty-day free trial subscriptions are available to permit librarians and users to review the website.

This past summer Alexander Street moved the WASM database to a new platform, known by its acronym LAZR. With this development, the three WASM databases--WASM IN THE US, WASM INTERNATIONAL, and WASM IN MODERN EMPIRES--are accessible in a new umbrella WASM LIBRARY. Users at academic libraries that subscribe to two or three of the databases will be able to cross-search simultaneously those databases. We think users will find this new search capability a tremendous resource.
