Based in the United Kingdom, Intute: Social Sciences provides access to high-quality resources for education and research for the social sciences, including law, business, hospitality, sport and tourism. All resources in the Intute database are evaluated and selected by a subject specialist, and most of these are affiliated with an academic or research institution.
Directory begun by a Princeton University graduate student in 1993 has become a first-rate portal to online sociology resources. In 2002 it was awarded the Graduate Student Prize of the American Sociological Association's Sociology & Computers Section.
This wide-ranging guide through sociology includes both an organized directory of links to resources by topic and original essays covering such subjects as death and dying, family, gerontology, gender and equality, race and ethnicity, social inequality, and social psychology. Created and maintained by Professor Michael C. Kearl at Trinity University in Texas.
Massive directory project gathers information and resources which are relevant for sociologists and other social scientists. So far it has defined 168 subject areas for browsing and searching. The site "has been designed from a global point of view...[and] the intention is to provide a comprehensive listing of all sociology resources on the Internet."
