NEW Libraries' Sociology Research Guide

The Libraries newest feature, a Sociology subject research guide, categorizes and describes reference and Internet resources at the Libraries, at Rutgers, and on the World Wide Web of interest to sociology and related social sciences faculty, researchers and students. The guide is composed of the following sections:

  • Reference resources include sociology related dictionaries, encyclopedias and handbooks available at the Libraries. These resources have been classified in terms of sociology subject categories.
  • A section on Journals, Indexes and Databases offers a social sciences journals search engine, that can be used to locate the full-text availability of sociology journals at Rutgers, and an annotated list of bibliographical and statistical indexes and databases.
  • Internet Resources consist of a comprehensive list of portals and meta-lists for sociology related Web sites. Further, a link to the Department of Sociology’s Internet links, and a “recommend a link” form for input from students and faculty are also included.
  • A section on Keeping Current provides ways of subscribing to different types of alert services from the various indexes and databases. It also has a “recommend a book” form for suggestions from faculty and students.

The Sociology subject research guide is accessible from the Rutgers University Libraries’ Web site by following the path: Subject Research Guides / Social Sciences & Law / Sociology.

This guide was created by Triveni Kuchi, social sciences/instructional services librarian. For more information on this guide, please send Triveni email at kuchi@rci.rutgers.edu.
