Tips for searching women- and genderspecific articles and essays

Since 1992, we have been compiling a database of literature on specifically women- and gender-related themes that are part of publications: articles in journals or contributions in collected works, conference papers etc.

It is easy to find articles and essays in the QuickSearch catalogue in the Special Collection > "Ariadne".

In order to read an article that you have found, you need to log in to your account and then place an order: for articles in journals, you will receive the volume in question, and for papers in collected works you will be given the book.
Recent and not yet bound issues of journals are marked "Item in place" and are in the open-access area of the Magazines Reading Room; they are for immediate use and do not need to be ordered.

For help with your research or any detailed search queries, please contact us by email. We will be glad to assist you further.
