Welcome to the Sociology and Communications guide.
Use the tabs to explore suggestions for key resources and information in this subject area.
For up to date and scholarly articles use specialised subject databases. For suggestions on appropriate sources look at our Databases - Best Bets tab.
There is also a great deal on information to be found on the web if used responsibly, check out our websites tab for some sites and information on critically evaluating them.
To get you started, here are the key shelfmark areas for your subject. The floor information is for books; print journals will have the same shelfmark but all journals are on the third floor.
If I'm unavailable, Academic Liaison Librarians are available at the LibSmart Point in the Learning Commons:
This space is on the first floor of the Library, where we can help you: find your way around; find resources for your assignments, dissertations and final year projects.
Or you can pick up top tips in our LibSmart workshop sessions.
Our discovery tool will look for books, journal articles and more in one quick easy search - a great place to start your research. For a more comprehensive search, individual databases offer greater functionality and give full access to a tailored suite of resources for your subject.
