Welcome to the library guide for Gender and Everyday Life with Dr. Kimberly Lamm.  This guide is designed to provide online resources and tips for conducting library research for your assignments. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your course librarian, Danette Pachtner.


Basic searching - LIBRARY.DUKE.EDU


Locate books, films, recordings, journals, and more using the Books & Media search.  Start with a keyword search then narrow results using the column on the left, including choosing "online" after filtering, for example, to limit your results to full text options. Note that at the top of the left column, you can also click "available online" for all your results.
