Institute for Gender and Development Studies

The IGDS St. Augustine Unit has a small documentation centre housing an assortment of books, reports, newsletters and newspaper clippings on topics related to the work of the Institute. There is also a small collection of films and documentaries for teaching purposes in DVDs and disc formats. Individuals may browse materials from the Documentation Centre and request photocopies. Please check back from time to time as the database is continually updated.

The Documentation Centre also holds a collection of interview tapes and audio recordings of seminars, symposia and conferences. This material has now been digitized with the assistance of the Digitizing Department at The Alma Jordan Library and is available on request, and soon to be uploaded to the UWISpace digital archive. 

The Documentation Centre sorts and archives material that is collected or donated.

It is also the first sorting point for documents and records relating to the activites and life works of persons, families, associations, community groups or NGOs that are destined for the Making of Feminisms in the Caribbean (MFC) or Making of Caribbean Feminisms [sic]. This material is sorted, before being handed over to The Alma Jordan Library to be fumigated, scanned for archival and research purposes and archived. Original hard copies are housed as part of the MFC at the West Indiana and Special Colections, of The Alma Jordan Library.
