Women's and Gender Studies Databases
Library databases offer a collection of journals, conference papers, interviews and book chapters. Using a library database to locate these items allows you to search by keyword, subject headings, author(s)' name, or even by date range or the number of pages in an article. The library subscribes to several databases that allow you to search for subject specific articles, including two specifically dedicated to Women's and Gender Studies.
"Women’s Studies International, produced by NISC, covers the core disciplines in Women’s Studies to the latest scholarship in feminist research. Coverage includes more than 871,000 records and spans from 1972 and earlier to present. This database supports curriculum development in the areas of sociology, history, political science & economy, public policy, international relations, arts & humanities, business and education. Over 2,000 periodical sources are represented."
LGBT Life with Full Text contains all of the content available in LGBT Life as well as full text for more than 120 of the most important and historically significant LGBT journals, magazines and regional newspapers, as well as more than 150 full-text monographs and books. The database includes comprehensive indexing and abstract coverage as well as a specialized LGBT Thesaurus containing over 6,400 terms.
