2012 Selection(s)

The Vogue Archive

Feb. 2012. ProQuest [].

Casual users could spend hours looking at fads and fashions (oh, those hairstyles of the 1980s!), while students or researchers will wish that every magazine archive was as easy to navigate and contained such complete information. A must for public and academic libraries where there is a special interest in fashion; recommended for all libraries where the budget allows.

Women in American Politics
