Research Guides

The librarians know that sometimes research can feel overwhelming. That is why they have made research guides to help!

Research guides are focused by subject, like education, performing arts, and criminal justice. They let you know the relevant resources for your area of study, such as which databases to use, and selections of useful websites.

Research guides focus in on your specific needs. Here are some examples of how the content varies by subject:

  • Psychological tests for a counseling student
  • Industry reports for a business student
  • Commentaries for a divinity student
  • Statistical data for a student of government

▲ Research guides are located under 'Research Tools' from the Library's homepage.
