Sociology: Background Information: Reference Works

Macdonald-Kelce Library Sociology Resources

Reference Books

The Reference section is located on the first floor of the library. Reference works are a good place to begin your research, focus a topic, and pick up on significant people, events, themes, aspects, and terminology. Typically these are not the sources you will cite but are ideal in gathering background information, breaking a large topic down, and identifying keywords to use in database searches.


The following Reference Ebooks are available through the EBSCO eBook Collection database. Log in to Esearch and follow the link in Ejournals to  access any of these books online.
