Sociology: Start Here

SEARCH RILEY LIBRARY

The "Everything" search means you are searching for all formats: books, ebooks, videos, CDs, and a selection of articles. To get a broad range of results, start with a very general topic.

It's a good place to start research, and to get ideas for terms. Be sure to click on the titles, then the "Description" section for more details, subject terms, tables of contents, etc. You can use the menu options on the left margin to narrow your search.

For more specific article searches, please look at the Journals, Magazines & Databases tab on this guide,

or use the Databases A-Z link below to explore all your database options.

Professional Resources

Search Google Scholar

Using Google Scholar will limit your search of the web to scholarly materials and help you to avoid commercial and unreliable sources. 

Google Scholar and Riley Library unite!

When you are on campus, Google Scholar results automatically display a Full Text @ Riley Library link if the library has access to a particular article.

If you are off campus, use instructions in the link below to do a one-time setup of Google Scholar on your home computer or device.
