These two free databases will help researchers locate scholarly books in English and global films focused on gender, feminism, and the lives of women, girls, and transgender people.

Sylvia
Inspired by Sylvia Plath’s tenacity and curiosity, this growing resource of hand-selected entries features recent books for researchers, scholarly editions, selected memoirs, and notable works for a general audience. Records include citations that can be copied and inclusive subject categories linked to related material. Visit Sylvia: sylvia.library.wisc.edu.

Dorothy
Named for prominent Dorothys, this database collects production details for films and television programs mainly produced since 2010. Projects directed or created by women and key topics in gender and women’s studies are central to this expanding resource curated for diversity. Visit Dorothy: dorothy.library.wisc.edu.
