Introducing the Social Sciences Blog

The Communication Reference Blog has been expanded to create the new Social Sciences Blog.  Although the blog will include all the same great posts about new books, featured resources, and library news, it will include topics of particular interest to Communication, Psychology, Sociology, Education, and Gender/Women’s Studies students and faculty.  Students and faculty in these departments will be able to discover new library resources in interdisciplinary areas of interest, in addition to monitoring only those posts related to their own discipline.

Either follow the Social Sciences Blog, or check in with a particular feed:


Please feel free to suggest topics to be covered in this blog!
