Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies: Finding Books

A guide to online and print resources for research in women's, gender, and sexuality studies.

What About Print?

Fall 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the print collection has been removed from the library building and will not circulate. This is due to sanitation and safety concerns and the need to provide appropriately distanced study space. Most of our collection is available online through Scholar OneSearch. If you need something that we do not own as an e-book, you are welcome to Recommend a Purchase. (Please keep in mind that requests may denied due to budget restrictions and/or availability of a library e-book license.)

Research Tools and Tips

Looking for a specific item for which you know the title? Use these quick search tools:

•  Ebooks

Use the Scholar OneSearch Browse search to find books by title or author. Use the "E-Books" filter on the left side of the search results to limit to books available electronically.

•  Ejournals

Use the Ejournal finder (search by title, e-only).


Use the A-Z database list.

Don't See What You Need?

If Northeastern does not own the book you're looking for, you can request a copy for free through InterLibrary Loan.

If you think we should own the book you're looking for, you can Recommend a Purchase. The subject librarian will review your recommendation. Please note that Snell Library is not generally in a position to purchase textbooks.
