Finding the right information is essential for doing well in your assignments. 

This guide will help you find:

General Information in encyclopedias and dictionaries, both in print and online, to get you started.

Books both in our library and other libraries, to give you a more in depth understanding of your topic.

Journal and magazine articles to find very specific information on your selected topic.

Primary sources, both in print and electronically, such as letters and personal journals,  to find out what individuals had to say about their lives and times.

Click on the tabs to get to the different kinds of resources.  At any point you can contact me for help or suggestions.

Since Gender and Women's Studies is interdisciplinary, you can also look for help in the libguides for other disciplines, such as World History, Canadian History Sociology, Political Studies, or Native Studies.
