Explore this guide to learn about the library and get started with research. Key points to remember:
The library is both a physical and an online space.
Some research articles, ebooks, audio, and video are online-only—you can access them from within the library, or anywhere with an internet connection. Others are available only in physical form in the library, and you can check out most of these. Good research means investigating both online and print.
Start your research early.
If we don't have a book or article you need, you can order it for free from another library. Your item might take a couple of days, or even more than a week, to arrive, so start your research early to make sure you get the items you need.
Get help from the get-go.
Go to our 'Place to Start' page to get guidance on the building blocks of research and academic assignments, including citing sources and learning about plagiarism and copyright.
Getting an early start reduces your stress and makes you awesome!
