Using the Schoolcraft Library Catalog

Use the library's catalog to search for Sociology materials.

Tips to keep in mind when searching:

1) Searching for "Sociology" under the Key Word or Subject criteria will give you a broad overview of Sociology materials in the library, but won't always give you the best results.

2) Instead, if you are searching for Sociology materials available in our library's collection, then use one or more of the following Subject Headings:

  • Criminal Justice
  • Criminology
  • Culture
  • Drug Addiction
  • Drug Legalization
  • Gender Identity
  • Globalization
  • Human Trafficking
  • Multiculturalism
  • Social Problems
  • Social Values
  • Sociology History
  • Sociology of Knowledge 
  • Urban Sociology
  • Women's Studies

3) As you explore our holdings, you'll discover more specific Subject Headings, such as: 

  • Criminal justice, Administration of United States
  • Globalization--History
  • Social Values--United States

These help narrow the focus of the search and can be helpful if you have a specific topic or genre you're interested in exploring. If you want to know all of the Subject Headings for a particular item in our catalog, then click the Catalog Record tab in the item's record. You can click on one of the Subject Headings and it will bring up a list of all the other items in the library that have the same Subject Heading.

Important Note: Keep in mind that some of these subject searches will return mostly (if not all) ebooks and online resources. If you are only interested in book results, then select BOOK under the "Format" option on the Advanced Search page. This will get rid of all the ebook and online resource results and only provide you a list of books under the selected subject.
