    WESS Activities and Publications


    WESSWEB has two goals:
  • to provide western Europe specialists with information for their work
  • to provide WESS members with information about the Section.
    WESSWEB does not intend to replicate the excellent guides prepared in Europe, but to supplement them and make links among them from an international perspective.

  • What is WESS?

    The Western European Studies Section (WESS) is part of the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association. WESS is professionally involved in the acquisition, organization, and use of information sources originating in or related to Western European countries. Our aim is to promote the improvement of library services supporting study and research in Western European affairs from ancient times to the present.

    WESSWEB depends on volunteers

    WESSWeb needs people to develop new projects, to coordinate areas, to manage pages, and just to email us about interesting new URLs or new addresses for existing URLs. If you're interested in participating at any level, send a note to any of the people listed below.

    Policy for WESSWEB is set by the WESS Publications Committee. Individual sections are edited by coordinators:
