This course guide brings together a variety of resources available from Duke Libraries and free online sources in order to facilitate your research.
If you get stuck, need a starting point, or just have a question, please contact Danette Pachtner, librarian for Women's Studies. Danette will be happy to meet with you to formulate search strategies and identify relevant materials.
Because Women’s Studies is an interdisciplinary course of study, other subject areas within the interpretive social sciences, arts, and humanities such as anthropology, economics, history, literature, and sociology may also have useful literature to offer. Guides for other subject areas and a list of librarians associated with these can be found on our Research by Subject page.
To locate books, films, recordings, journals, and more, choose the second tab, Books & Media, aka the Duke University Libraries catalog. Start with a keyword search, and narrow results by using limits in the column on the left.
Search TRLN to find and request books from UNC-Chapel Hill, NCCU, or NC State. Delivery to campus is usually in 2 business days.
Can't wait? You can use your Duke Card to check books out anytime at TRLN partner libraries if you make the trip yourself!
