March is Women's History Month and your campus library is recognizing this observance with a special display in the library's foyer.
Just inside the library's doors you'll find a selection of books and DVDs, as well as a collection of biographies highlighting famous women from Alabama and beyond.
Women's History Month Resources Online:
- Carmichael Library Women's History Month Bibliography - Over 30 items chosen by library students and faculty
- Alabama Women's Hall of Fame - Located on the campus of Judson College in Marion, the Hall recognizes the lives and achievements of notable Alabama women
- National Women's Hall of Fame - Honors over 200 American women "whose contributions to the arts, athletics, business, education, government, the humanities, philanthropy and science, have been the greatest value for the development of their country"

Finally, I'd like to take a moment to recognize Carmichael's own Barbara Belisle, who graciously consented to the use of her story for this first Women's History Month display. To those who don't know Ms. Belisle's story, I hope you'll have a chance to come in to the library and read about it. Thank you, Barbara, for sharing your story, and for your continued contributions to the Montevallo community.
