The CWS Library and Documentation Centre houses a wide collection of books and growing number of documentaries and other films relating (principally) to different aspects of gender and society. The Library is open to students and faculty members from all over the University.
CWS faculty and Direct PhD Students are allowed to issue books. All other members of the university, or people from outside the university, with prior permission, can sit in the library and use the available resources.
Students can access online journals subscribed by the university from the library computer.
For each course, a copy of the course reader is kept in the library and students are allowed to photocopy the relevant course reader.
