In order to search for information effectively, it is a good strategy to use reference books to learn basic facts and terminology about a topic. Here are books in the Reference Collection of the library and online reference books that will provide a good beginning.
Reference Books are located in the area near the Reference Desk. Reference Books cannot leave the Library, but can be photocopied or scanned.
Look for Reference Books by using the Library Catalog or browse the shelves. While Sociology covers a wide range of topics, the main Library call number area begins in HM.
