Introduction & Agenda
Welcome to the UCSB Library course guide for FEMINIST STUDIES 120. Use the tabs above to locate library resources (books, articles, government documents, etc.) and services for researching women's, feminist, and gender issues. In the box below I've highlighted statements from your syllabus which illustrates how library research fits into your overall project.
- Research guide overview - way more than I can cover, but there for you to explore
- Catalog demo - for finding books and chapters; keyword searching
- Women's Studies International & Social Science Databases via CSA demo - for finding scholarly articles; using UCelinks to locate full text
- Occupational Outlook Handbook (time permitting)
Don't waste too much time trying to figure things out on your own - PLEASE ASK FOR HELP. Librarians are available 24/7 to assist you. We don't expect you to know how to use this stuff, but we do expect you to ask for help.
Research Objectives From the Syllabus
Ethnography Library Research Requirements: "For the ethnography, you might watch women working or engage in participant observation by analyzing your own experience or resistance at work in light of the RELEVANT LITERATURE."
