Gerontology Research at USC

This guide is meant to give an overview of materials and resources available at USC Libraries for researchers in Gerontology. Use the tabs on the left to find useful resources for finding articles, background information, and more.
Ready to jump in? Here are the top things to know about starting your research in Gerontology:

Article literature is expansively indexed by two databases in the gerontology field, Ageline and Abstracts in Social Gerontology. PyscINFO and Google Scholar are also a good places to start.

Managing all the materials you find is a key to success. Use a tool like RefWorks to save, organize and output all those citations.

ARES (course reserves) is where your professors post assigned class readings (except for those in your textbooks).
