Web Resources


Socioeconomics refer to both social and economic factors.  This section contains a selection of resources relating to social class, economic conditions, inter-generational mobility, the labor movement, class consciousness, etc.


To find peer-reviewed (also called scholarly or academic) articles the best place to look are the library databases.  Most of these databases also have popular (newspaper and magazine) articles as well as reports, books, reviews and more.

Finding Full Text Articles

While some databases include the full text of articles, others only provide citations. Citations may include the 360 link to help you find full text through other sources.

When an article in a database does not include full text, click on the 360 Link to Full Text button. 

You may be redirected to a different database, to the library's print holdings, or to interlibrary loan.

If you have any problems, ask a librarian for help.
