Library Gains Access to ‘SAGE’ Wisdom

April 27, 2017

The UC Merced Library now has access to SAGE Research Methods (SRM) thanks to the California Digital Library’s purchase of a six-year license that provides updates to the resource through 2022.

SRM comprises the SAGE Research Methods Base Model, Case Studies and Datasets. SAGE research videos are not included in the digital library CDL purchase.

The SRM Base Model supports research at all levels by providing material to guide users through every step of the research process. The tool serves as the ultimate methods library with more than 1,000 books, reference works, journal articles and instructional videos by world-leading academics from across the social sciences, including the largest collection of qualitative methods books available online from any scholarly publisher. The site is designed to guide users to the content they need to learn a little or a lot about their methods.

SRM Cases provides more than 500 case studies that illustrate the challenges and successes of doing research. Cases are peer-reviewed and come with instructional tools including learning objectives and discussions questions. SRM Datasets is a collection of teaching datasets and instructional guides that gives users a chance to learn data analysis by practice. Indexed by method and data type, these sets can be used in classroom exercises or in exam papers.
