About Diana

DIANA is the collaborative venture of a consortium of law librarians, university based human rights centres, and other non-governmental human rights organizations. These groups came together to build a comprehensive, timely, and authoritative database of electronic materials essential to human rights research. Our group takes responsibility for the topic of women's international human rights and is a contributing site for the DIANA database in our area.

Diana Vincent-Daviss was the inspiration for this project. She was the first woman to head the libraries of both the New York University School of Law and Yale Law School. She was appointed law librarian at Yale in 1991. She was especially known for her work in the areas of preservation of library materials and international human rights. Her numerous publications in those areas include a research guide on human rights law published in the N.Y.U. Journal of International Law and Politics. At the time of her death she had recently been named deputy director of the Orville H. Schell, Jr. Center for International Human Rights at Yale Law School. This database, inspired by her pioneering work, is dedicated to her memory. 

This site is part of the Diana international human rights database.
