Simone's Library


On the 4th floor of the Simone de Beauvoir Institute we have Simone’s Library (MU401-1) where students, professors and research associates can browse the collection, borrow books, and find a quiet space to work.


Simone’s Library opening hours: Tues, Wed, and Thurs. 1-7pm


The library's collection provides resources for those interested in women's studies. The collection is composed of over 2200 books and is growing! The library houses primarily non-fiction works, and is stronger in the social sciences. Our collection also includes an impressive number of feminist periodicals from the early 1970s onward. During opening hours, the Documentalist is available to assist with research, book loans and questions.
