Sociology Subject Guide — Finding Books and Videos

General resources for sociology

Finding Books and Videos

You can find books, journals' articles and videos by searching the Library's General Search (the text box in the library website). It is one stop shop to search all our library resources.

Using Google Scholar

Research Tip: If you are new to sociological research and are having a hard time to find articles on your topic, try using Google Scholar to try out your keywords. Databases used controlled vocabulary which means that they are very rigid about what terms they used to classify the articles in this system. Google Scholars is more forgiving and expand your searches to include variations of a word, which allow for more results to appear. You can then identify the most successful keywords and use them in our subject specific databases.
