Resources on Woman Suffrage

Other Institutions' Woman Suffrage Resources

These are other resources found during research. It is NOT a comprehensive list. The Connecticut State Library does not endorse any other institution's guides.

The Connecticut State Library (CSL) has access to federal information, although we may not subscribe to resources listed in other libraries' guides.

When listed call numbers are in the SuDoc classification system, they will often translate to CSL collection. Call numbers listed in other systems may not apply to CSL.

Some institutions take down their resources after a time. When possible, we will link to an archived page in the WayBack Machine. These links may take a little bit longer to load.

Other Institutions

These are only a few selected resources, mostly with a Connecticut focus. Most of these institutions have many more resources - you may want to extend your research with them.
