Ariadne reference works

Ariadne reference works

Reference works present an introduction to the field of women's and gender studies and their various thematic focal points. The bibliographies, handbooks, lexicons, encyclopaedias etc. are described in brief and marked with location and shelfmark. You can either find them in the open access areas of the reading rooms at Heldenplatz – Main Reading Room (L), Ludwig Wittgenstein Research Reading Room (FOR), Austriaca (AUT) – in each case under the classification GEN, or you can order them from the stacks via the QuickSearch catalogue.

Thank you for understanding that further information is available in German only.
