Twentieth Century Advice Literature: North American Guides on Race, Sex, Gender and the Family

The Library now has electronic access to Twentieth Century Advice Literature: North American Guides on Race, Sex, Gender and the Family. This database produced by Alexander Street Press focuses on gender roles and relations, American consumerism, changes in reaction to each major war, class relations, and adjustments to new technology, among many other topics. The collection includes traditionally published items, including how-to books and guides; professional manuals, such as employee manuals; society publications, including sorority and fraternity pledge manuals and Boy Scout and Girl Scout manuals; textbooks; teacher-training and course manuals; commercial literature; and government instruction manuals for a variety of workplaces and industries.
