Introduction to the Virtual Library

The Virtual Library of Astrosociology contains two major of resources for the astrosociological community:  (1) original material sent directly to Astrosociology.org and (2) a reference section consisting of non-posted materials.

Eventually, this page will contain the contributions of others received by Astrosociology.org in the forms of (1) original articles written exclusively for Astrosociology.org and (2) existing printed articles that are posted ("reprinted") with permission.  The growth of astrosociology as an accepted sociological subfield depends on a concentrated effort by a new community of scholars who dedicate themselves to this new area of study through the systematic application of theory and research.  All of these future articles will be offered to provide new ideas about the various aspects of astrosociology.  They are intended to provoke discussion and contribute to the growth of a new body of sociological knowledge.  Astrosociology.org will post various works deemed to be acceptable based on the value of their content and their contribution to the diversity of existing posted works as they are accepted.

Original materials directly address astrosociological concepts and phenomena while materials in the bibliography may also include items that are indirectly related.

Links to websites and pages which contain relevant materials can be found on the Links page of this website under the heading Articles and Essays by Various Contributors / Articles from the World Wide Web.  In this way, the Virtual Library remains focused on both original materials and printed materials that directly relate to astrosociology.  Initially, these sorts of items may be difficult, or impossible, to find on the web.
