|Some of the information listed from this repository has been extracted from lists available in the
library. The lists were compiled by library staff and we are grateful for their assistance. Where
partial or no lists were available staff of the Women's History Project constructed an outline list.
Due to time constraints not all items in this repository were examined individually.
We are grateful to Maria Diamond and the staff at Libraries NI for their help in updating entries contained in the original Directory.
