Gender Studies in the Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum

The books and periodical holdings of the former branch library Social Sciences have been joined with the holdings of the former Central Library in 2009.

You can find books and periodicals on Gender Studies according to the notation of the Regensburg Classification Scheme (RVK). Normally, literature on Gender Studies is shelved in a subject-related way, with the main part being located in the subject area of Social Scienes. The call nubmers start with the letter combination MS 2800 - MS 3250. The literature is provided at the following locations:

Textbook Collection (EG, Area A): Here you can find multiple copies of important textbooks. These books can be borrowed by students and staff of the Humboldt University.

Magazine Rack (1. OG, Area D): Here you can find the current journal issues. These journals cannot be borrowed. However, most of them are available online. Journals on Gender Studies start with the call number MN.

Bounded Journal Volumes (2. OG, Area B): Here are the bound issues of the previous years. The call numbers comply with those of the current issues on the 1. OG, starting with MN. Journals are generally not borrowable.

Many journals are also available online. An increasing number will be available online only.

Books on Gender Studies (4. OG, Area A + B): The book stock consists of monographs, anthologies, and  bibliographies. It is provided systematically according to the notation of the Regensburg Classification Scheme (RVK). An overview of the notations is provided on the Website of the Regensburg Classification Scheme.

If there are no special markings (for example a yellow non-lending label), the literature can be borrowed.

In the Former Institute Stock (7. OG)  you can find more relevant books. This literature is shelved by consecutive numbering.

Literature in the closed stacks is only available by online order.

An additional stock is being provided in The Center of Transdisciplinary Gender Studies (ZtG) of Humboldt University.
