Research Guides

Research Guides can be the best place to start your research, especially when the library is closed. Research guides bring together sources for a specific course or topic for all steps of the research process:

  • background reference sources
  • books
  • databases of periodical articles
  • web documents

The guide Steps of the Research Process explains how to research efficiently and effectively, and which types of sources are best for each stage of research.

Also see the list of bibliographies available for specific topics.
