Databases for Sociology Studies
Off-campus users: In order to use the research databases, you will need to access them through the links on the library site, not by typing the web addresses (for example, nclive.org) directly into your browser; then you will be directed to a login page where you'll need to enter your key account login and password (same login used for accessing Blackboard, WebAdvisor, and my.waketech e-mail).
