Getting Started with Library Research
Exploring a topic?
- Try an encyclopedia or other
reference book to explore a new subject! We have general and specialized
subject encyclopedias like the Encyclopedia of American Social History or Encyclopedia of Catholic Literature. Ask a librarian for help!
- You can use online encyclopedias through Gale Virtual Reference Library or through Oxford Reference Online. Or do your background research using one of our subject guides.
Need to find journal articles?
- Try Academic Search Premier, JSTOR, or Project Muse.
- We also have specialized tools for finding articles in Business, Education, Nursing, Psychology, and other subjects.
