The Women's and Gender Studies collection supports the teaching, research and service activities of the entire university community and beyond. Its primary audience is the faculty, staff, and students of the Women's and Gender Studies Program primarily in the College of Arts and Sciences, as well as in the colleges of: Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, Architecture, Business Administration, Education and Human Sciences, Engineering, Fine and Performing Arts, Journalism and Mass Communications and Law. Its primary focus is support for the undergraduate and graduate curricula and research in Women's and Gender Studies. Specific and transient research needs of Women’s and Gender Studies faculty and graduate students should be supplemented through the campus resource collections in Women’s and Gender Studies Program, Women’s Center, LGBTQ Resource Center, and through the Interlibrary Loan. Materials are not purchased for the general public, though they may benefit from the collection. While the collection focuses on works classified in the LC Classification HQ - Social Sciences - Women, the interdisciplinary nature of the program means that the collection covers works related to women and gender issues in the entire LC classification range and may overlap with those in Art, Ethnic Studies, English, History, Law, Psychology, Political Science, Sociology, to name a few, for works about/by women and LGBT authors and communities in those subject areas.
