Sociology Guide: Find Books

E-Book Search

While you may or may not be able to access our print collection, our eBooks are always available to you!

A Note About JSTOR eBooks

In the event that you find a book in JSTOR that looks like we have access, but when you actually click on the JSTOR link it says we don't, do not despair! In most cases, those books can be purchased quickly.

Email Martha Zimmerman with a screenshot of the book you want to access.

Taylor and Francis eBooks

SU Libraries also has a collection of books from Taylor and Francis. Those books cannot be searched with via the catalog search box above. Instead, search the Taylor and Francis database below directly.
