WRIT 151: Writing Studio: Welcome + Books

This is an introduction to the way we find academic resources.

Welcome to Your Research Guide!

Your Research Librarian has put together a guide for your assignment needs.

This guide will be helpful when finding information for your research.

Remember that your research should include academic resources, and not just information you found using Google which are questionable and often times may lack credibility or factual correctness.

Follow the instructions below:

1) Find Books

Use this page to find print and ebook resources on your topic. 

2) Find Articles

This is where you'll find articles of information for your topic. There are multiple databases you can use, and you should them as they cover varied aspects of your topic. You'll also be able to find information about your profession, art, culture, and gender.

3) Find Reference/Background Information

Use these resources to find general information.

4) Find Images

You'll need to have images for your presentation, and there are two very good resources to help you find ones that visually represent your topic.

5) Schedule an Appointment

Here's where you can schedule your group to meet with a Research Consultant at the Library.
