Dear Sociology Faculty,
I hope everyone is having a great semester so far. You may have noticed that the University Libraries has a new look to our webpage. The organization of links has changed quite a bit, but the content you are used to seeing should all be there; it just may be in a different place. If anyone is having trouble with navigating this new site, or if you have any comments, questions, or concerns in regards to the site, please let me know. Also, you might notice that when searching the catalog some changes have been made to the results list. Icons have been added next to each of the titles that indicate the material type, e.g. e-book, book, film, etc. As always, I am available for any instruction or research needs you may have. Also, please feel free to contact me if you have any suggestions, questions, or concerns about the library.
Sociology of education: An A-Z guide
USC Libraries recently obtained an e-book version of Sociology of education: An A-Z guide. This electronic reference book provides an introduction for students on many aspects of education in society in an encyclopedic, entry based format. This resource is an excellent source for delving into the many societal issues of education. This can be accessed via the library catalog.
Educational Film Collection
Have you thought about adding a video component to your teaching? The Educational Film Collection at Thomas Cooper Library is ready to help you make that a reality.

This collection includes materials suitable for many subject areas, including Anthropology, Humanities, History, Film Studies, Psychology, Sociology, English, Business, etc.
