Digitizing the WES Journals

The Women’s Engineering Society (WES) has been at the forefront of engineering in the UK ┬ásince 1919. It has since gone global and is now a vital resource not only for women in engineering, but as a snapshot of general progress in engineering since the society’s inception. The WES has been publishing its quarterly journal since World War I, and to commemorate its upcoming centennial, they are seeking to digitize the journals.

Of course, digitizing any extensive archive of material takes time and money. The WES has a Kickstarter campaign that ends soon to help raise money to offset the costs. Consider donating to preserve knowledge of engineering’s history and journey.
