The Women’s Wear Daily Archive

We are currently testing an extensive archive of Women’s Wear Daily, one of the biggest fashion magazines in the United States, widely considered the ‘Wall St Journal’ of the fashion industry. The test will run until November 19, so hurry to test the archive before the trial expires.

A comprehensive archive of Women’s Wear Daily, from the first issue in 1910 to material from within the last twelve months, reproduced in high-resolution images. Every page, article, advertisement and cover has been included, with searchable text and indexing.

The Women’s Wear Daily Archive preserves one of the fashion industry’s most influential reads. Key moments in the history of the industry, as well as major designers, brands, retailers and advertisers are all covered in this publication of record.

To access the archive, you must identify yourself as a student or employee at the University of Borås. Follow this link for access to the database.

Scientific theories & methods

Do you want to know more about scientific theories and methods?

The library offes a test of SAGE Research Methods, a database for theories and methods. Which should you choose? What does the terms mean? SAGE Research Methods will help you with a “method map” and over 700 works within the area of methods, from dicitionaries and video clips to articles and manuals.

We are testing it until 16 th of June and the database can be found under Trial Access to Databases on our web site.

Below an image from of a “method map” can be seen. In the example we have gone through qualitative research and qualitative data collection and ended up in ethnography. Here some articles, books, key people and other material related to ethnography can be found and maybe it will help you to design your own experiment or research.
