La base de dades Cassandra. Una veu ginecocrítica

Eulàlia LLedó


The aim of this article is to explain what the Cassandra database is all about and how it works. Cassandra is a bibliographical database which fundamental aim is to operate as a means of consultation to come to a better understanding of literary works and to be able to study aspects of literature which haven't received much attention. Since it´s not a simple bibliography, but bibliographical information organised in a continually changing database, you could say it's a “living bibliography”. Cassandra consists of the dates and explanations of 135 books dedicated to literature on classical and modern women writers. It contains a summary of all books and in most cases also an evaluation, so that whoever consults Cassandra can get a better idea of whatever book he or she is interested in.
