Library Services Update 2021-22

This Library Services page will be kept up to date with information about access to the library collections, online access to teaching resources and how to get further help.

Journals for Gender Studies

Main Library

The Main Library holds the majority of books for Gender Studies. Most of these books are on the 2nd floor or in the HUB Collection on the ground floor.

Key databases for Gender Studies

Finding Library Resources - DiscoverEd


DiscoverEd is the one of the main ways to find the resources that are available to you. Your University Login gives you access to DiscoverEd where you can explore many of the online and physical resources, as well as the special repositories within the university collection. 

Not everything within the University collection can be identified using DiscoverEd and you may also need to use specific databases to find additional material.

genderEd creates a virtual space to showcase excellence in teaching, research and Knowledge Exchange Impact in gender and sexuality studies at the University of Edinburgh.

E-resources trials

The Library regularly arranges trials to new resources. Publishers are usually willing to provide trial access to allow us to use and evaluate a resource before making a decision about purchase.
