Browse the shelves (Sociology)

Sometimes wandering the shelves is useful. If you can find one book on a topic, others like it will be sitting close by on the same shelf.  Be sure to look at both the Reference collection on the first floor for general helps like encyclopedias, and at the circulating collection on the second floor for books you can take with you
