March 1, 2017

Los Angeles, CA. SAGE Publishing today announces that it has expanded SAGE Video, its highly reviewed library of streaming videos across the social sciences, to include two new collections: Sociology and Criminology & Criminal Justice.

“For more than 50 years, SAGE Publishing has developed resources that advance the scholarship and understanding of the social sciences,” commented Karen Phillips, SAGE’s Senior Vice President of Global Learning Resources. “With SAGE Video, we can deliver such content directly into the hands of those in the field, classroom, library, or on-the-go. The new collections contribute to a robust, comprehensive video resource across the social sciences, and enable us to further support all types of users – from the new undergraduate looking for initial reference material, to the instructor who wants to illustrate concepts in action, to the advanced researcher learning about implementing a new skill in a new context.”
