Alesia Montgomery

Subject Specialist for Sociology, Psychology & Qualitative Data

Alesia Montgomery

I am the liaison for the Sociology and Psychology Departments, and I consult and collaborate with qualitative researchers campus-wide (see my topic guide on qualitative research).

To further social science research and teaching, I select and acquire scholarly publications (print and digital), special collections and archival materials, and quantitative, qualitative and geo-spatial data.  I design workshops on the use of mapping and data analysis software in qualitative studies, and I provide research and reference services. 

Contact me if you have questions about the sociology or psychology collections at Stanford University Libraries.  I am available for online and in-person research support.  I consult at the Velma Denning Room, the computing facility for Social Science Data and Software (SSDS).
