Gender and Women's Studies: Researching Topics : Welcome
UW Gender & Women's Studies Librarian's Website
Here you'll find a multitude of resources for Gender and Women's Studies (GWS)- and LGBTQ-focused research. On the website you can find suggested databases, links to research guides and the Core Books Project, and Women's Knowledge Digital Library (WKDL), a growing compendium of online resources.
In addition, the Gender & Women's Studies Librarian has an editorial staff. They publish:
- Feminist Collections: A Quarterly of Women's Studies Resources (also in GenderWatch),
- New Books on Women, Gender, and Feminism (a bibliography of book information; many of the citations are also in Women's Studies International database) and
- Feminist Periodicals: A Current Listing of Contents (useful to browse to see what's been published recently in about 150 feminist/gender periodicals -- can help in choosing course paper topics!)
- WAVE: Women's Audiovisuals in English, a database of information about women-focused videos and DVDs, some of which are on campus. Look up the video/DVD titles in the Library Catalog.
The UW-Madison campus libraries have a combined homepage at http://www.library.wisc.edu. From this page you can:
