Our small library is in the Race, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (RGSS) Resource Center, 4301 Centennial Hall.  Books are organized by subject and can be checked out.  They are catalogued through Murphy Library.

We also hold a small collection of movement newspapers from the 1970s, 80s, and 90s that provide interesting historical perspectives.  Contact the department chair for access.  


Our DVD and VHS collections are in the RGSS office, 4300 Centennial.  These are our teaching collections, but films can be checked out for other classes or for private viewing.  If you are an instructor at UWL and would like to view an up to date list of our collection, please email ADA, Laura Garves.  See our ADA or a student employee to check something out.
