KVINNSAM - Women's, Men's and Gender Studies

Kvinnsam is an interdisciplinary scholarly index on women and gender, containing citations in English, Swedish and many other languages. If the page appears in Swedish, click on "English" at top of the page. Kvinnsam is produced by the Women's History Collections Department at Göteborg University Library, Sweden, and is mounted through LIBRIS, the Swedish National Database. The references consist of books, journals, articles, chapters, pamphlets, dissertations, research reports, etc., and most are from the 1970s to the present. Subject headings and field tags are in English; keyword searches in other languages retrieve titles in those languages. A list of subject headings is at http://www.ub.gu.se/kvinn/kvinnsam/listor/.
