It’s occurred to me recently that I’ve been very lackadaisical about citing the sources for the information I’ve posted. The main reason for this was because when I started this blog it was just to house random pictures or facts I came across as I researched the history of women’s ice hockey. I didn’t want to spam everyone on my regular blog when I went on a research tear and didn’t think much about a potential audience for this information beyond that. As this blog has grown in followers (and I’ve even seen some of the information posted on Twitter!), it just seems odd not to share where the information is culled from.
I can’t guarantee I’ll go back and update every post that isn’t already cited, but I’ve updated the site with a Resources page. On it, you’ll find a link to the books and papers I’ve found to be full of interesting information about the history of women’s hockey. There are several other books out there, many in my to-read pile, but these are the ones I’ve read and have used for tidbits on this site.
Beyond the books and papers, I’ve included links to a couple websites. Andria Hunter’s page is a goldmine of the history of late modern women’s hockey (1990’s to mid 2000’s). Combine it with the use of the Internet Archive for some of the dead links and it’s a women’s hockey rabbit hole you may not escape from.
Outside of the above, a lot of the information I’ve posted comes from old news articles and library archives.
I’m going to try and be better about citing the sources of the information I post in case someone wants to read more on the topic. However, if there’s ever anything you want to read more about, please feel free to drop me a line. I’ll gladly share the links to anything I’ve found.
