Today’s guest post is courtesy of Sara Kuhn, CFL’s Scholarly Communication and Social Sciences Librarian. A huge thank-you to Sara for information on these new sociology resources!
The Chester Fritz Library has subscribed to its first educational streaming video collection in sociology and related disciplines! The Sociology Video Collection is published by INTELECOM Learning and made available through Credo Reference’s Sociology Essentials Collection.
The Sociology Video Collection includes 283 short videos which can be shown in the classroom or linked through Blackboard. Students and faculty have access to the collection and can watch the videos at any time. The videos touch on a wealth of multidisciplinary subject areas and investigate all areas of sociology and social interaction. Students will be able to learn the scope of, and issues surrounding, a topic, as they would when reading an encyclopedia entry, albeit in an updated and admittedly more interesting audiovisual format.
Themes in the collection include
- animal studies
- research methods
- social psychology
- social theory
- social work
- urban sociology
Please take advantage of these videos today! A full list of all video titles as well as a full list of eBook titles included in the new Sociology Essential Collection can be found online. The eBooks in this new collection are accessible through the Library Search box on the library homepage or through the Credo Reference database.
The Sociology Video Collection can be accessed on the Chester Fritz Library website via the Databases A to Z link or the orange Quick Links button.
The video collection has also been included on the Sociology Research Guide and other related subject guides.
