For librarians, the Sociology Collection is a cost-effective way to provide the leading indexes required for serious research in sociology and social work together with high quality full-text content from important publishers such as Palgrave Macmillan, Springer Science + Business Media, Cambridge University Press, and Emerald Group Publishing.

It includes the following databases:
- Sociology Database, which provides full-text journals, dissertations, and other content covering sociology, social work, and related fields.
- Applied Social Sciences Index & Abstracts (ASSIA), which is an index database covering the applied social sciences, spanning the literature of health, social services, psychology, sociology, economics, politics, race relations, and education.
