MiWin Web-based Resource
What is it?
The Web-based resource is a comprehensive bibliography containing over 80 journal articles and books that pertain to women of colour and Indigenous women, faculty and administrators in the areas of hiring and tenure, activism, pedagogy and teaching, and institutional reform in higher education. The majority of references contain an abstract, information about where to obtain the reference and if available, a link to the url or pdf for the full text article or the on-line journal.
Where and how can it be accessed?
The bibliography is housed in RefWorks, an on-line bibliographic reference management program currently available to all UVic faculty, staff and students. The Web-based resource is available to MIWIN members on this site with a link to RefWorks http://gateway.uvic.ca/lib/instruction/refworks/index.html.
MIWIN members will need to enter:
1) UVic ID and password
2) the special RefWorks account name and password.
