How to use the library

  • The categories on the left side of the Library allow you to view resources grouped by issue, type, author, topic, region or year. 
  • You can select multiple categories at once for a combined search (eg. Videos on intersectionality from 2015)
  • If you want to do a single category search, remember to unselect any previous categories you may have selected, or it will automatically do a multiple category search.
