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.
