The Barnard Women’s Center recently sent out a questionnaire to people involved in women's studies requesting their opinions on a proposed interdisciplinary bibliography of the year‘s work in women's studies. As the responses soundly supported our project, we would now like to proceed with collecting information both from organizations and from individuals. Our purpose is to incorporate the year's academic studies on women, either completed or in progress, along with information on innovative action projects such as women's health collectives, community day care, legal aid, women's publications, feminist theater, film projects, and so forth. In this way we hope to spark a livelier interchange between theory and practice. 
 What we need from you in the space provided below is a description of the research or project in which you are involved. Or if you know of an individual or group whose work should be included, please either let us know about it or else pass this request for information on to them. Finally from those associated with women's publications, we would welcome any publicity for our project that your publication can provide.
 Thank you in advance for your participation.
