Use the tabs above to explore the many resources available to students and faculty:
- print and digital reference sources for getting started (i.e., Sociology encyclopedias)
- catalogs for discovering books (both print and digital format, at STL and in libraries worldwide)
- databases for searching for journal articles
- streaming videos and DVDs
- selective reliable websites
Feel free to contact me for additional guidance. Contact information is available on the right-hand side of page.
Books can provide contextual information for specific peer reviewed journal articles. Books are sources of selective bibliographies (lists of citations of important information sources).
