What are Research Guides?

Research Guides offer starting points for your research, such as what databases to search for the journal articles that you need for your paper, what reference sources to use to find background information for your topic, etc.

We divide the Research Guides into Majors & Minors, Course Guides, How-to Guides, Special Topics & Issues, which are the TABS you see on the top of this page.
