SOC/ANT 4110: Research Methods

Finding research methods books

Search the library's catalog, to find books on your topic.

Research methods books for sociology & anthropology usually have a call number that starts with the letter H, which is located on the 4th floor of the library.

Since sociology/anthropology research topics are often cross-disciplinary, you may find books in other call number ranges.

For example, research methods books that focus on community health will usually have a call number that starts with the letter R, which would be located on the 5th floor of the library.
