For your Sociology assignments, you may need to use books for background research or to support your ideas and analyses. Remember that you may not always need to read the entire book - sometimes, just one or two chapters will give you all the information you need.
eBooks are exactly the same as hard copy books in terms of content, but the difference is you can access them online! If you do a catalogue search in the box below or from the Library's Website, your results will automatically include eBooks. The Library has many more eBooks than print.
Streaming Platforms and DVDs
The CapU Library also has many DVDs and subscribes to a number of streaming platforms that include documentaries, some of which relate to sociology. When you search the CapU Library catalogue using the box below, or from the main Library Website, you will automatically get DVDs and streaming films in your search results. Films can give you great information for your assignments, but always check with your instructor before using them as an official source.
Discovery is the Library's one-search experience. Find articles, books, films, music and more!
