Sophie Digital Library, German-speaking women, historiography




German and Russian


The Sophie Digital Library is an online library and resource center for works produced by German-speaking women. These works are focused on the publications from pre- 17th century through the early 20th century. Unfortunately, the group of women in Germany living during this time faced many challenges and one of them was being underrepresented in historical works published from their research and achievements. The Sophie Digital Library consists of works produced by German-speaking women from this time frame that help to highlight their successes that have assisted in shaping the future for other women who strive to achieve something great. My mentored ORCA projected featured the Technology and Science collection of the Sophie Digital Library that includes works from women who have established the different fields that fall under technology and science.
