Sociology -- Resources & Services (Main Library)

The Sociology Resources Portal provides links to a wide range of resources to facilitate course work, scholarship and career development.

Why use dictionaries, encyclopedias and other reference tools?

These types of resources can be very useful at the beginning of your research or when you venture into subject areas for which you have little or no knowledge.  Use these resources to define unfamiliar terminology, find background information, retrieve bibliographies of other resources or even to identify additional or synonymous keywords (search terms) for searching research literature databases.

Dictionaries, Thesauri, etc.

Encyclopedias
