Begin research
Library research is is a multi-step process that doesn't always go in a straight line; you may find yourself returning to previous stages as you refine your topic.
Ask a Librarian
You can chat online, send a text message, email, or call us with your questions.
Research by subject
Each subject guide contains lists of databases and resources, collected and posted by the subject or college librarian. Each guide also lists resources for getting an overview of your topic, general purpose databases useful for any topic, and contact information for that subject's librarian.
Use other research tools
Links to browser plugins and other software to help you with your research.
Writing help
Information on the Writing Center and CommLab and other resources to assist you with the writing process.
Cite sources
A list of major citation and style guides, online and in print.
Avoid plagiarism
Plagiarism is claiming someone else's idea or writing as your own. It is a serious academic integrity violation—see the Undergraduate Honor System.
