March is National Women's History Month

This year's theme for National Women's History Month is: "Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination: Celebrating Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics."  In honor of the month, Special Collections at TSU's Robert J. Terry Library has installed an exhibit that features information about National Women's History Month, items from the Heartman Rare Books Collection, and a video presentation from the Barbara Jordan Archives featuring the late astronaut Sally Ride.  Ride was the recipient of the Juanita Kreps Award in 1995, and the awards ceremony includes remarks and congratulations from Jordan. 

Please come by the library during the month of March to see the exhibit--and be sure to stop by the archives and say hello!
