In recent years, the spotlight on STEM education has given rise to hundreds of studies ranging from the recruitment and retention of students in STEM disciplines in higher education to the workplace climate of faculty and staff. Imagine patrons trying to find sources on STEM-related topics such as biases women face, classroom experiences, learning communities, mentoring or work-life balance for assessment, best practices, or accreditation purposes. This information was not readily available in one location for easy access for reports, press releases, curriculum, grants, or other publications. In 2018, I received an ALA Carnegie-Whitney grant for the creation of an online bibliography that provides easy access for librarians and researchers. With the help of a student research assistant, we created a LibGuide documenting and organizing over 1,100 citations regarding the status of women in STEM in higher education.
