This guide is designed to help Claremont Colleges students, faculty, and staff find and use library resources in Gender and Women's Studies.
If you don't find what you need or need more help with your research, please don't hesitate to contact Alex Chappell, the GWS librarian, for an appointment.
Encyclopedias, dictionaries, and other resources to help you discover basic information—names, dates, definitions, summaries, etc.—about women, gender, and feminism can be found in the Reference section in Honnold/Mudd Library. Many of the reference works will be in the HQ section. If you are looking for something specific, try using the Library Search or ask the GWS librarian.
Remember that whenever you are researching anything involving gender | sexuality | ethnicity | race that the terms change frequently.
Don't just rely on the words/terms you prefer!
