Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Zentrum für Transdisziplinäre Geschlechterstudien

Gender Library

The Gender Library has been an integral part of the ZtG since its founding in 1989. With its wealth of materials and broad range of information services, the library supports the entire HU community — especially students and researchers in the field of women’s, men’s, queer, and gender studies. Beginning with the founding of the gender studies degree program in 1997, the Gender Library has worked in close cooperation with the central Humboldt Universität library to expand the amount of gender studies literature accessible through the central library catalogue, HU-OPAC.

The Gender Library supports researchers of all backgrounds and interests. Our staff is always happy to assist in the navigation of the vast information resources available worldwide for gender studies research.

The Gender Library offers:

  • An online resource catalogue (GReTA),
  • Updates regarding new library acquisitions and events in the gender studies community at the Gender Library Webblog,
  • Information about other gender studies resources, such as bibliographies and archives.
