dc.description.abstract"This talk will address the inception and design of a new AU digital collection that focuses on self-representation in organizational histories. Our subject is the Alberta Women's Institutes, which celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2009. Although the WI is all but invisible these days, it was, for most of the 20th century, the largest rural women's organization in rural Alberta. Among its earliest members were Emily Murphy and Nellie McClung, who used the organization as a vehicle, both provincially and nationally, to promote the rights of women. "en
