There are many specialist print and online resources for Sociology and Politics in Cambridge. These pages give you an overview of the resources and research support that libraries can offer.

Locating print collections

Specialist print resources and library help is available via your subject's Faculty or Departmental Library.

If you're looking for a specific item, the easiest way to track it down is by using the library catalogue, iDiscover. Type a few words from the item's title into the search box, and the results will tell you what is available in Cambridge, and how you can access it.

If you're looking for resources on a given topic, add a few keywords to the search box on iDiscover. Be careful with your search terms, and try synonyms if you're not getting the results you hoped for.
