Women & Gender Studies: Home

A guide to women's studies resources at the Auraria Library and on the Internet.

Women & Gender Studies Research

Auraria Library has a wide variety of material about women and gender studies. This guide is intended as an introduction to women-centered and feminist materials, which are kept in a particular location, usually under a call number beginning with "HQ."

Be sure to be aware of the date of your information. The date of statistical information is always important; in addition, laws change, attitudes change, and new issues become important. Feminist style and rhetoric has changed. To understand older feminist material, even older second-wave material, you must be aware of its historical and cultural context.

Keep in mind that material about women and gender may be located nearly anywhere in the library -- women musicians in the music section, women writers in the literature section, women mathematicians in the mathematics sections. Also remember that material by or about women may be written from many standpoints; it may be feminist, liberal, conservative, or radical. As with information on any subject, you have to consider the point of view of the author and how that affects the value you will place on the information.
