KvinnSam at Gothenburg University Library
KvinnSam – National Resource Library for Gender Studies, is a university-wide research infrastructure at the University of Gothenburg based in the Humanities Library. Its work involves monitoring and cataloguing literature on gender issues, collecting, organising and cataloguing archive material on women’s history and providing a reference service.
The secretariat is represented on KvinnSam’s board and also works with KvinnSam to conduct systematic searches of the literature when producing research reviews. The secretariat has been engaged in long-term collaboration with KvinnSam on the Gena database, which contains references to Swedish doctoral theses in women’s studies, men’s studies and gender studies.
