Guide to Abbreviations

Abbreviations

Some entries contain abbreviatiations to indicate additional details about a writer or her work. For example, the abbreviation cont. in the bibliography section of an entry about a particular writer indicates that she contributed to the publication listed.

Furthermore, many of the records for individual women writers contain abbreviations referencing materials in the Reference Resources collection. For example, the record for Elizaveta Nikolaevna Akhmatova lists "DRWW" as one of the places where more information can be found (in the References section). In this database, "DRWW" is an identifier assigned the Dictionary of Russian Women Writers. In fact, many of the abbreviations you'll see in the Reference, Archives, and Bibliography sections of the database serve this cross-referencing purpose. To look up what they stand for, use the Advanced Search features of the database to search for a specific identifier, using the Narrow by Specific Fields option, or consult this page.
