Introduction: About this guide

Welcome to the Sociology Library Resources guide! 

This guide is designed as a jumping-off point for your research in the field of sociology.  It covers key resources, both in print and electronic, but is not comprehensive.  Remember that sociological queries are often interdisciplinary, so be sure to check for library resources in other areas like agriculture, art, education, ethnic studies, gender studies, health, history, law, psychology, and urban planning---depending on your topic of inquiry.


Use the tabs across the top of this guide to navigate to the different sections.
