In 2013, on the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of the establishment of Sociology Collection (previously called Sociology Documentary Department), some sociologists and researchers shared their memories related to us. They had intensive relations with our department in the period of 40 years; they know sociological repository (collection) and services of the library well, used them previously or use them currently. A few competent people spoke, those who were the heads of department until now and some colleagues who worked with us previously, for shorter or longer times.
