Mandy, your Sociology Librarian, can point you toward...

  • Print and electronic resources in your field for exploring the secondary research in your areas of interest.
  • Resources that will streamline your research process, such as:
  • Features that allow: (1) saving successful search strategies in databases to repeat in future research sessions; and (2) setting up citation alerts to be notified when an article has been newly cited or recently published that matches your search criteria.
  • Citation managers (such as Zotero) available for saving and organizing references and their associated electronic formats, streamlining in-text citations, and for generating bibliographies.
  • Interlibrary loan services, allowing requests of materials from other local libraries, USG campuses, and libraries around the U.S.
  • Desktop Delivery - get journal articles and book chapters from our print collection delivered electronically to you.
