Social Conflicts focuses on the origins and development of groups in promoting and resisting change, resource mobilization, strategies and tactics, individual and social consequences. 

Welcome! This site has been created to assist you finding and using library resources for your Sociology 470 research. Our library is the largest publicly funded university library in the world. It can be a bit overwhelming at first, but it is truly a treasure trove for scholars. All of the UIUC Library's resources are available to you as you do your research, so explore, have fun, and don't hesitate to ask questions!

CITING SOURCES

Guidelines for citing electronic and print resources are available from the Reference Library's Cite a Source page and the Social Sciences, Health, and Education Library's Style and Writing Guide.

RefWorks

A great tool for writing papers, RefWorks helps you export bibliographic records from databases, change the citation styles as needed, and import the citation directly into a Word document so you can create bibliographies on the fly.
