Sociology 261: Gender in Transnational Perspectives: Books & Journals

A Guide to Library Resources for Sociology / Gender and Women’s Studies 261 (SOC / GWS 261)

Finding Books & Journals

When you find something you want in the catalog, write down the following:

Location - in which library the item is kept (or libraries, if we have multiple copies)

Call Number - this number is essential for finding the item on the shelf

Status - is it available for you to check out?


Hint: Catalogs are used for two purposes: (1) If you know exactly what you are looking for – an exact title or author – you can use the catalog to locate your material (this works for book titles and journal titles); (2) You can also use catalogs to discover material that might be helpful to you by doing subject and keyword searching.

Use the two source below to verify citations for books and request books and articles you cannot find elsewhere.
