Gender, Women, & Sexuality Studies

Oxy OneSearch

Oxy's library catalog is called OneSearch. OneSearch searches not only the books that we have in the library, but also searches more generally. Depending on the filters you use, OneSearch will also show you articles from databases that Oxy subscribes to and to books that we don't own. Make sure you are logged into your library account to get the most out of OneSearch.

Wander the Bookshelves

The Occidental College Library uses the Library of Congress (LC) classification system to organize physical books by call numbers in the library book tiers. The tiers are found by turning left when you enter the main floor of the library or asking the information desk for help!

Call numbers that include materials relevant to gender & sexuality include the following:

HN1-995   Social history and conditions.  Social problems. 
  Social reform
 Tier 1 
HQ74-74.2   Bisexuality

 Tier 1 

HQ75-76.8   Homosexuality.  Lesbianism  Tier 1 
HQ1101-2030.7    Women.  Feminism  Tier 1 

Accessing Material We Don't Own

Many of the books, journal articles and other resources you find can be accessed through Oxy. However, if not, you will need to request them through Interlibrary Loan. If you are logged into your Oxy account, most interlibrary loans can be made via a link associated with the article/book.
