The Miss Margaret Robins Archives of Women’s College Hospital (WCH) is pleased to announce its participation in the newly launched Canadian Archive of Women in STEM. This initiative features a publically available web portal that provides searchable descriptions of historical collections preserved in archives throughout Canada related to women in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

With a historical collection that dates back to the 1890s, the WCH Archives contributed descriptions of its archival material related to the history of women in medical education, medicine, research and nursing in Canada.

The University of Ottawa, in collaboration with Library and Archives Canada and the International Network of Women Engineers and Scientists – Education and Research Institute (INWES-ERI), hosts the Canadian Archive of Women in STEM.
