Find What You Need Faster
What do America Ferrera, Larry David, and Amy Brenneman have in common? They're all proud to call themselves feminists.
Blogger Courtney Martin (raised in Colorado Springs) examines the perennially loaded word "feminism" in this personal and heartfelt talk. She talks through the three essential paradoxes of her generation's quest to define the term for themselves.
In many cases, a good place to start your research is with the Feminist and Gender Studies reference sources in the tab above.
For finding books, use TIGER, the CC Library Catalog:
TIGER will tell you what we own (books, DVDs, CDs, etc.) or subscribe to (journals, databases, etc.) at Colorado College. It will not help you find articles in journals. (To do that, try the "find articles" tab above.)
Prospector will help you find books and other items in other Colorado libraries which you can request and have sent to Tutt Library for you to use.
WorldCat can help you find books in libraries almost anywhere and request them via interlibrary loan.
Please ask me or any librarian if you need help with TIGER, Prospector, or WorldCat. That's what we're here for.
A word about browsing: when you go the shelf, make sure to look at the books sitting near the one you’re after. Serendipity is often the most successful method (if you can call it a method) of finding things. You may particularly want to wander around in the HQ (Family, Marriage, Women, and Sexuality) section of the stacks.
