The International Information Centre and Archives for the Women's Movement (IIAV), Amsterdam, is archiving issues of online periodicals (currently 593 titles), including email newsletters. With permission of the publishers, most archived issues are stored on an IIAV server and are accessible, even if the publisher takes some down or the publication ceases. The periodicals are listed at http://www.iiav.nl/online/periodicals/, along with all issues that have been archived. Each ongoing title is also linked to its actual website. Examples include ARTLINES, from Women's Caucus for Art: GLOBEWOMEN NEWS, from the Global Women's Business Network; the newsletter of GRANDMOTHERS FOR PEACE INTERNATIONAL; KOSOVAR'S WOMEN'S VOICE, from the Kosovar Women's Network; and NINETEENTH-CENTURY GENDER STUDIES. There are also many women's periodicals in European languages. In addition, the IIAV separately archives selected online articles at http://www.iiav.nl/online-articles/ (currently there are 1,567 of them). All records for the online periodicals and articles are also in the IIAV catalog (http://www.iiav.nl/eng/databases/catalogus/index.html), along with records for print holdings.
