Looks just like ProQuest Research Library, but is actually much narrower. The key index to literature in sociology and related fields, here you have a better chance of finding what sociologists have written. Subject terms let you quickly find all work on a topic with less keyword guesswork. Not for full-text searching.
Also known as Social Sciences Citation Index, this broadly interdisciplinary index is a great way find research, see how much it has been cited, and search based on citation relationships rather than keyword.
Full text of core journals in many academic fields. Narrow to sociology and you'll get your best full-text search of the most influential journals. Can be hard to search on broad topics because there are no subject headings.
(Searches through citations, subject indexing, and some full text)
Covers current research focused on social work and human services and related fields of social welfare, social policy, and community development. Covers 1979 - current.
Limit to magazines, news articles, and trade literature. Searching by ranges of time is often helpful. Remember that some magazines will be available in print in the library, once you discover the articles here.
