To find credible sources on sociology topics, select Social Sciences under Research Databases by Subject on the library services webpage. For overview articles use a database such as Credo Reference that contains reference books, or use QuickSearch and limit to Books under Source Type. For scholarly journal articles use a database such as Sociology Database or Social Science Database (both are in ProQuest Central). For controversial sociology topics you may also select Issues/Controversies in the Research Databases by Subject list to use Points of View Reference Center or Opposing Viewpoints in Context.
