Women's and Gender Studies et Recherches Féministes (WGSRF) is the national professional association in Canada for studies in the field.
The purpose of this guide is to recommend print and electronic resources for conducting research in Women's Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies in the Library. Click on the links on the left for suggestions about starting your research, getting books and articles, and finding other useful tools for research in women's studies.
To learn more about the library and its resources and how you can exploit them to your advantage, register in the Research Skills Tutorial on D2L. There are several sections in the tutorial with a short quiz at the end of each; at the end you will receive a Certificate of Completion. Many professors require you to take this tutorial--and once you finish it, you can save your certificate to reprint as often as necessary.
We can hold special classes at the request of at least 5 students. If you would like to arrange a special class, or you think your course would benefit from some in-class library instruction, please ask your professor to contact the librarian responsible for your faculty to set up some sessions.
In the library: The Library User Assistance Desk to your immediate left as you enter the library is a good place to start.
