Given the interdisciplinary nature of sociology research, you may need to use multiple databases during your research. However, Sociological Abstracts is still the gold standard for searching the sociological literature, so be sure to start there. If your needs are not met with this database, ask a librarian for additional suggestions specific to your research topic.
The following databases also contain large collections of sociological materials.
Some databases don't include the full-text of articles. When there's no full-text, click on the button. This will search through the library's full-text holdings in other databases and give you a link to the full-text of the article. If there is no online access, there's a link to the library catalog to see if we have the full-text in print.
