Orlando is a comprehensive electronic database of material relating to women's writing in the British Isles, from earliest times to today. It offers a wealth of biographical and critical information on more than 800 British women writers (including over 20,000 bibliographical listings), together with helpful entries on literary and historical events, male writers and non-British women writers. Orlando also includes material on living writers, and is updated at regular intervals with new entries relating to past and present times. Data may be accessed in many ways, and the entries are cross-tagged enabling searches to focus on precise intersections not only of author, date and place, but of genre, topic and theme as well. Overall, Orlando is both a mine of interesting, accurate and relevant information and a valuable research tool for anyone interested in the history, progress and development of women's writing in the British Isles.
