Bibliographies in Gender and Women’s Studies

Beginning at its inception in 1977, the Office of the Gender and Women’s Studies Librarian has curated this series of bibliographies. The bibliographies have been prepared by librarians, women’s studies faculty members, graduate students in library and information studies, staff members of the Gender and Women’s Studies Librarian’s Office, and others.

The first 37 bibliographies spanned from 1977 through 1984; the second set of 43 bibliographies were created between 1985 and 2000. All of the bibliographies were numbered and are listed below in reverse order. When available electronically, the bibliographies are linked.

If you would like a copy of a bibliography that is not yet available electronically, please contact the librarian to make a request. Please refer to the number and title of the desired bibliography. All are offered free of charge, except where noted.

The GWS Librarian is continuing the latest set of bibliographies, which span from 2005 to the present. If you would like to request a bibliography on a new topic or an update on one of the bibliographies listed below, please contact the librarian.
