How to Find Books about Women's History

The library contains many monographs and surveys about women's history. To find them, search the library catalog using the suggested subject headings in the next section.

Another way to find circulating books about women's history is to check The American Historical Association's Guide to Historical Literature (REF 016.9 Am34 1995). This book lists the best works of history in every field, with brief annotations of each book. Check the sections on women's history, as well as subsections in other fields about women, domesticity, the family, and the like. A similar book is the Reader's Guide to American History (REF 016.973 R2273). The Reader's Guide gives brief essay treatments about different topics in American history, explaining which books are important and how they relate to one another.

If any of the books you need is not owned by the library, then use the links in the boxes below to request it through PASCAL Delivers or Inter-Library Loan. You can also search for books using the Google Books and Google Scholar links to the left.
