Many of our databses use subject terms to label documents. Subject terms function like a hashtag and are used to describe each document within a database. The Library of Congress provides a foundational list of subject terms, though many databases add additional, more discipline-specific subject terms to their indexes.
Though not an exhaustive list, the subject terms below relate to Women's Studies. You can copy and paste these into a database search window or click on the hyperlinked subject headings as you come across them in the databases you search. See a list of the databases to which we subscribe here.
