Women's and Gender Studies

Women's and Gender Studies resources and research help at Paul Meek Library

It can seem overwhelming when you have to choose from our hundreds of databases, so we've made it easier by selecting a few databases that work best for your general subject. 

Feel free to tinker with your search parameters and all the helpful limiting options when you start searching in these databases. Online research is a little bit like online shopping - you'll need to explore and narrow down your options as you go.

Women's and Gender Studies research is interdisciplinary by nature, so you'll want to explore a variety of resources. The following are just a few examples of databases that can prove useful. 

If you're not ready to jump into a database just yet, and would like more grounding in your topic, check out the Research Starter links below. 

You can find print books available for check out on the second floor of the library. You can find reference books (things like encyclopedias and dictionaries) on the first floor. And you can find electronic books through PML Search and some of our online databases. Take a look at the sampling of books we have to offer below. 

For many of our electronic books, you can print out a limited number of pages or a chapter (if you want to take notes on the document). You can also search within ebooks for keywords or phrases - this can save you time if you're trying to track down information in large sources.
