Doing GSWS Research

Since Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary field, it may require you as the researcher to search for information in places you may not have thought of. This guide will help point you in a few possible directions. If you have specific questions about your research, please do not hesitate to contact me

Why use Library Search?

Library Search combines our catalog (what we physically have in the library) with many of our databases. Library Search is most helpful for finding books and films that we own here at the library.
