A research guide to help you find books, articles and other resources on topics in Women's and Gender Studies.

Books & E-Books

To find books in the Brock Library on your topic, go to the Library Catalogue, and select the Subject and/or Keyword search options. Or try a keyword search in SuperSearch!

  • A Subject search ensures that all books on the same topic can be found using the same search terms, e.g. WOMEN CANADA HISTORY
  • But if you do not know the correct heading for your topic, try a Keyword search, e.g. FEMINIST PHILOSOPHYThis is particularly useful if your topic is interdisciplinary.

To find ebooks on your topic. go to the Databases page, and select E-Books. You can search specific ebooks by keyword, or search collections (databases) of ebooks. Ebooks may also be listed in the Library Catalogue.
