Some of the BEST

I feel the following are great places to start your research.  Just click on the titlles in color to access.  If you are using a database off campus you will be asked to logon with your SVC logon and password.

  • Two article databases EBSCOhost and  ProQuest Direct have journal, magazine and newspaper articles in the thousands.  You can read most of the articles online, find how to cite them properly, print or e-mail them.  
  •  CQ Researcher - is a weekly publication on a topic of current interest which is often in the sociology area.  Our database of CQ Researcher articles is full-text and provides a good starting place to learn all the background information on topics covered.
  • Films on Demand is a database of documentary films and film clips in the Social Sciences.  If you need a film clip for a report or presentation Films on Demand is the place to look.   
  •  Encyclopedia of race and ethnic studies  is an eBook available from the library online catalog.
