Finding Sociology Books at MSU Libraries

We have lots of books about sociology and related topics in the Main Library!  Most of the collection is located in the Library of Congress Call Number range in the H's and primarily within HM-HV.  These books are housed in the Basement of the Main Library. 

The best way to search for books is by searching the Catalog. Once you find one or two books that match your topic, you can browse in that call number area or subject heading for additional relevant titles.
