Selection of women and gender studies materials is not limited to the call number ranges listed above. The LC classification schedule does not neatly describe the interdisciplinary nature of women’s and gender studies. The Gender Studies librarian is the primarily selector of women and gender studies materials for the Main Library collection in all formats, and in collaboration and consultation with bibliographers in other subject areas and locations.
