Use this guide to help you get started with your academic research utilizing the tools and resources available from the library.

Find Books

Books Cover Depth

Books give you in-depth information on a topic, and are good sources for information that happened in the past or interpretive information for an on-going event or problem.

Find Articles

Databases Cover Breadth

Databases contain academic research materials such as peer-reviewed journal articles, conference papers, news paper articles, magazines, and other sources.

Articles Cover Specifics

Articles are great sources for highly specific information. Articles usually include bibliographies, which can lead you to additional information on a topic.

Find Organizations

Organizations Create Standards

Looking at the websites of organizations can help you find recent topics in the field, as well as find standards used for your particular line of research.

Find Additional Resources

Supplement Your Data

Statistical data, websites, and contact information can help round out a research topic and support in areas where books, articles, and other resources cannot.
