Why a feminist Library?

The WRC keeps a library of feminist books to loan out to students in order to help provide alternative viewpoints on campus. By highlighting traditionally marginalized voices, the WRC library is a refuge, a place for reflection and action, and a resource for support and information.

The WRC library has over 1,000 books, zines, videos and DVDs on topics ranging from feminist philosophy to women’s history, health, spirituality, sexuality, gender, racism, and theories of oppression, for both personal reading and research.

Loan Policy

The loan period for taking out our books, zines, and magazines is two weeks. We ask that you borrow a maximum of 5 items at a time and promptly return them after 2 weeks.

Please keep in mind that the feminist library at the WRC is in invaluable resource that has been lovingly nurtured for almost 40 years. Please respect our resources and be mindful that others may be interested in the materials you have borrowed.

The neglect of returning materials from the feminist library will result in a loss of borrowing privileges.

Search ORBIS

Some of our resources can be found by searching the University’s ORBIS catalogue, but if you don’t find what you’re looking for come in and check in person, or call ahead!
