Five College Library Catalog

Note that subject searching isn't always straigtforward. Try a KEYWORDS ANYWHERE search to find a few relevant titles, for example: (women or gender) and iraq* [note the use of the asterisk - a wildcard to look for iraq, iraq's, iraqi, etc.] Then click on the subject headings on those records to conduct a more comprehensive subject search.

Or, look up one of the books from your syllabus, and use the subjects assigned to that collection to locate books on the same topic, for example, Women and Gender in Islam: Historical Roots of a Modern Debate.
