If you have any questions about locating, evaluating, incorporating, and citing sources, please feel free to ask a librarian

Welcome to the subject guide for women's studies research at TLU!

1: Find background information in reference books

Reference books can provide background material and be a launching point for further research. Here are a few.

You can find many more in the library catalog advanced search with the Location limited to Reference.

You can also search for e-reference items using our Gale Virtual Reference Library or Credo Reference.
