Sociology 15 (Lor): Pre-Activities

Sociological Research Methods


Dear Sociology 15 students, 

I'm Elizabeth Salmon, Research Services Librarian and Library Liaison to Sociology. On Tuesday 9/14, I am joining your class to provide an overview of research techniques and resources to support your Soc 15 projects. 

Before 9/14, please:

  1. watch the 3 videos below.
  2. set up the VPN (if you haven't already.)
    1. Connecting to the VPN will allow you to access Library resources from off-campus. See UC Merced VPN Installation Instructions (all devices) for instructions; problems with installing or connecting? Contact OIT.

During our session, we will begin with a review of the information presented in the videos. Hope everyone's semester is off to a great start! Elizabeth
