          The Barnard women's Center recently. sent out a questionnaire to people in-

” volved 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 livlier 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.
