Reviewing the Scholarly Sociological Literature Published in Books

  • The Library's online catalog
  • WorldCat
    A catalog of library holdings worldwide. WorldCat will indicate any local library holdings and also offers an inter-library loan request option.
  • E-Z Borrow and Interlibrary Loan
    Interlibrary loan is available for books and journals that are not owned by Falvey. EZ-Borrow is usually faster than interlibrary loan, since the books come from a local library network. EZ-Borrow can be used for books that the Library owns, but that are currently checked out by somebody else.
