Sociology: Finding Books

These tabs provide links to information relating to the subject of Sociology.

  Online Catalog

To find books available from the Purdue Libraries, visit the Purdue Libraries home page.

Click on the "Books&Media" tab:


If you would like more search options such as pull-down menus, click on "Advanced Search"  ("Advanced Search" is located directly under the red "Search" button).  

If you are looking only for books, make sure that the "Material Type" menu is set to "Books."

After searching, results may be sorted by using options on the left border of the page.

Once you have results for your search, select "Find in Print" or "Find Online."  "Find in Print" will display physical location and call number so that you can retrieve the book. Most of the Sociology books are housed in the Humanities, Social Science and Education Library (HSSE) in Stewart Center.  E-books are available in full text using the "Find Online" option.  Use Downloading Ebooks for information on downloading these resources.
