If you are looking for help in starting your library research, I recommend starting with a short article in a specialized encyclopedia for back ground information: Starting Your Research.
If you have a good idea about the basic background of your topic and want to find books that you can checkout, start with a keyword search of the Library Catalog: Books
If you need to find journal and magazine articles, you have several options. The basics are explained here: Articles
Library Access (for finding library resources from off-campus):
Research Appointment: If you would like to schedule a one on one meeting with a librarian to help with the whole research process, please complete the Request for Research Assistance form.
Interlibrary Loan: If an article or book you need is NOT available through the sources the Library owns, we will borrow it (for books) or get a copy (for articles) from another library. This is easily done from the search results in OneSearch.
