Sociology: Library tools

Portal to the library's information for sociology & sociologists

Reference tools

The collection, safe storage and organization of literature and reference information is essential for researchers. The University Library has the ideal tools to help you.

Databases for citation searching

Citation searching is: take a publication, and search for articles and other publications by which it is cited. This can reveal important relationships that may not be found by other ways of searching.

Lean Library

lean-library icon

Lean Library is a browser extension for off-campus library access.

How does it work?
If you visit a website the library has a license for, you will get a notification. Click to login and get access.

The browser extension displays its icon in your bookmarks bar. It works almost like a traffic light. If the icon is green, then you have access. If the material you’d like to use doesn’t seem accessible, Lean Library will automatically check for open access versions of the article.

The extension is not yet available for mobile devices
