Not sure where or how to start your research paper or project? Have questions about part of your research assignment?

The guides below will help answer those questions and will walk you through the various steps and phases of research. Also, the video tutorials on our library’s YouTube page will demonstrate how to find books in the library’s catalog and articles in various databases.

You can also make a research appointment with a librarian at any point in your process. We can help with narrowing a topic, showing you which resources would be most helpful for your assignment and topic, choosing keywords, and more. Fill out the Schedule a Research Appointment form or contact one of the librarians to get started.
