Summary

This book fills the need for an introduction to research tools and library services valuable in the investigation of topics related to women. The core of the book is an annotated bibliography that describes selected bibliographies, indexes, catalogs, handbooks, directories, and biographical dictionaries and evaluates the traditional reference aids available in most college libraries in terms of their usefulness in women's studies research. Organized by type of material and general topic, the bibliography is fully indexed by author, title, and specific subject. Ms. Searing addresses the general principles of library organization and highlights issues and problems of central concern to researchers in women's studies, such as sexism in card catalog subject headings. The book illustrates the planning and conduct of systematic literature searches to aid both student and scholar in diving into the interdisciplinary waters of women's studies.
