Women's College Basketball Team Media Guide Collection

Identifier: EPH 7500

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of printed media guides for women's college basketabll teams. Media guides were typically published by colleges or universities on an annual basis prior to each basketball season. The guides generally included a review of the previous season (including statistics), a preview of the upcoming season (including schedules and opponent information), and photographs and bios of players, coaches, and staff. Other content sometimes included broader information about the history of the program or of the institution. Some guides contain advertisements. Printed guides were primariy distributed to the media and were sometimes also provided to season-ticket holders or sold to fans. Media guides became increasingly popular and more substantial in the 1980s and 1990s with the growing interest in women's basketball. In the 21st century there was a marked trend towards replacing printed guides with online guides. This collection includes guides from four-year colleges and universities across the country without any real regional bias. Most guides date from the 1990s and early 2000s. Materials include printed media guides.
