Welcome to the TWU Libraries Multicultural Women and Gender Studies subject guide! Here you will find a variety of research, news, and information sources. As a subject librarian, I'm available for questions about library resources and research. I can work with classes or one-on-one, both in-person and virtually. Send me an email or call to set something up. I'd love to help at any step of your research paper or project and at any time during your academic or research career. 

The pages to the left will take you to resources surrounding the research process and resources available through TWU's online catalog. There are also pages that provide resources available online that cover "grey literature" or research resources that aren't "peer reviewed" but can provide background information on a variety of topics, as well as resources to use during research projects.

Below you'll find the link to the Woman's Collection at TWU and the Gateway to Women's History, TWU's digital library to the Women's Collection.. This is just a small sample of what Special Collections and University Archives has in their collections. Contact Special Collections to see what primary sources might be able to help or inspire you!
