Q. How do I get started with research?
Research can be a bit overwhelming at first, but the library is here to help!
You might first try checking out the Research Guide for your major, class, or assignment. The librarians select the best resources for you to get started with. These include encyclopedias, databases, and websites.
Our A-Z Database page is also a great place to start. You can find a database for your particular subject, or you can start with one of our large databases that apply to most majors, located on the right side of your screen.
The PML Search on our library website is a super handy tool. This allows you to search many different things at once, including books, images, articles, news, video, AND MORE!
We also encourage you to reach out to a librarian for help! There are lots of ways you can do this.
