Gender, Women’s, + Sexuality Studies offers a Reading Room and Student Lounge, located in the GWST main office, 413 Fine Arts. In addition to a quiet reading space with comfortable chairs, the Reading Room offers a small group work space.
The department has a large catalogs of books, reference materials, periodicals, current magazines and more. You can access the current inventory for the GWST Library here. Texts not currently being used in a GWST course are available for borrow/personal use. If a textbook is currently being used by an instructor in one of our classes, the texts will be available for use in the library.
If you cannot find the resource you are looking for, try the Women’s Center’s Library, and of course the UMBC AOK Library. If you are working on a research project for one of your GWST courses, you might consider reaching out to Joanna Gadsby, the reference librarian for Gender, Women’s, + Sexuality Studies. You can also refer to the GWST subject guide on the library website.
