Sociological Theory

Tips and hints for locating resources for your research project.

Finding Sources for Your Research Assignment

Professor Heck requires you to have:

  • A research paper that will:
    • Be 8-10 pages in length
    • have a focus on a major theorist
    • Incorporate a review and analysis of at least one of the theorist''s majorworks
    • Be formatted using the Turabian Style Manual
    • Use Times New Roman 12 point font, be double-spaced with one inch margins

 It's always wise to collect more than what you think you will need. This is especially true if you have to rely on interlibrary loan (borrowing from other libraries) and don't have the book or full text article to consult immediately.

The information on this guide will help you to discover different types of resources.  Please ask your instructor or one of our librarians for help if you have difficulty using the sources or you just don't know what else to try!  We'd be very happy to work with you to discover the sources you need!
