The sociology collection supports teaching, learning, and research through the Ph.D. level, with attention given to the areas of strong focus in the UT Sociology department: history, theory and methodology, criminology and deviance, demography, education, family, gender, health, politics and development, race and ethnicity, and social stratification.

English is the primary language of collection, with a focus on studies concerning the United States and Western Europe. The interdisciplinary nature of sociology compels several subject specialist librarians in the social sciences to work together to provide appropriate coverage for their constituencies.

Electronic and print format materials are collected to meet the needs of users. Periodicals and products of mainstream U.S. publishers are collected in electronic format, when available.
