Finding GWST journals in University Libraries

To find the GWST journals University Libraries owns, either online or in print, search using the following strategies:

In Keyword, type:

womens studies


gender studies


women art (or any discipline)

Click on Search.

Using the “Collection” facets list on the left side of the results screen, click on Journals/Serials.

You will see a list of titles that University Libraries owns on that subject.  Since not all journals relevant to GWST use those terms, try searching the term women or gender in combination with the discipline you wish to study.

Finding Databases by Subject

In the Databases and Related Subjects tab I have listed some subject specific databases related to gender and women's studies. ns. University Libraries provides access to a wide variety of other subject specific databases, from anthropology and art to theatre and tourism.  To find the databases from the University Libraries home page:

1)  Click on the Databases & Articles tab

2)  Change the Databases by Category to the discipline you want, such as Film Studies

3)  Look for the database with 4 stars to the right of the title.  The 4 stars indicates the database is core to that discipline, and will provide in depth coverage of the literature concerning that discipline.
