Introduction to the Women's Studies Guide

This guide provides selected information resources supporting Women's and Gender Studies and includes both historical materials and those relating to current issues in women's lives. Included in this guide are the Mildred F. Sawyer Library subscription databases (available to current students and faculty), selected web resources, and a brief list of print resources.

Keep in mind that specific subject guides might also be useful.  If you are researching family violence, check the materials listed in the Criminal Justice or Sociology Guides.  For women in American history, exploring the American History guide would likely be useful.
