The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) is in the process of acquiring microfilm of the German women's magazine: Die Dame. As the Libraries are a member of CRL, WU faculty, students, and staff can request microfilm reels via Inter-Library Loan.
Die Dame, July 1922–December 1941
35 reels; $5,250
Originally published by Ullstein, Die Dame was a glossy sophisticated magazine for the German New Woman. Die Dame provided topical commentaries on fashion; detailed discussions of the latest trends in clothing, accessories, and hairstyles; and elaborate coverage of the film world.
As of January 1, 2012, the WU Libraries joined the HathiTrust Digital Library, whose goal is to digitize, preserve, and increase online access to library collections. The trust derives its name from hathi (pronounced "HAH-tee"), the Hindi word for elephant.

WU faculty, students, and staff can:
Download 2.7 million+ volumes in the public domain
Search the full text of 10 million+ volumes
Create personalized collections of items in HathiTrust
