Reference Books for Sociology

Reference items are helpful for finding background information; definitions and spelling; facts and figures; translations; statistics and topical overviews of subjects. Reference books can be found both in print and online.

How can I find A book?

Use the Library Search to find books, you can limit your search using the drop down options on the right hand side of the search box to just search for books both print and electronic. You can further refine your search using the facet options on the left hand side of the screen, limiting your search to "On the Shelf"  will only list items that are actually on the library shelves at that time and therefore should be available to borrow.

Alternatively If you limit your search to the option ‘Glucksman Library’ this will list all items even those out on loan.

Finding books and ebooks

The Glucksman Library uses the Dewey Classification scheme for most subjects.  Use the Library Search to see if the item is available in the library, you can refine your search to "On the Shelf" to see only those items that are on the shelf at the time of your search.  Note the shelfmark and then go to the shelf to locate the book.
