Journals and Periodicals
Although many of the journals we have in Sherratt Library are available in electronic form, there are times when a print copy is the way to go. Below is a list of journals we have in print and electronic formats. (Note: Print copies of journals are housed on the first floor of Sherratt Library, organized alphabetically by title.)
Here at Sherratt Library, we use the Library of Congress classification system (call numbers) to organize most of our items, including print books and e-books. Below is a general list of call numbers that relate to Social Science (they can help you find items faster).
Because there are so many different call number ranges that would pertain to Social Science, it is probably best to visit the guide for the specific class you are currently taking and doing research for. Some of the major call number ranges are listed below and linked to the guide:
