The collections in Princeton University Library are rich and varied for the study of gender and sexuality.  This highly selective guide covers a range of primary and secondary resources available in print, microform, and electronic format.  In most cases, the subject-specific tabs above will list important reference works, encyclopedias, bibliographies, biographical sources, and full text databases.  Collections listed under the tab, Primary Sources for Historical Research, are topically arranged microfilm sets of personal papers, periodicals, and organizational records, while many other sets document women’s role in the suffrage movement, science and medicine, and other significant events of the nineteenth- and twentieth-centuries.  Use the Special Collections Finding Aids tab to link to detailed scope and content descriptions of women and gender materials housed in the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections, and the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library.

This guide is based on one created by Emily M. Belcher, and her work remains vital to the scope and content found here.
