This box uses the library’s EBSCO Discovery Search to find results on your topic in a variety of formats. The results found using this box will include journal, magazine, and newspaper articles, as well as books, videos, and other formats. This search box is a good place to start your search, although it does not search all of the library’s resources.
Professional librarians are available through our online chat service 24 hours a day, 6 days a week to assist you with research or library-related questions.
The Begin Your Research page will guide students independently through the research process, from selecting a topic to citing sources.
Watch the videos and read the instructions to get help for each step in your research assignment.
Selecting the Library Databases button will show a list of all of the resources and databases provided by the library.
You can scroll through the entire list or narrow it by subject or the first letter of the title.
The default view displays a list of the most popular databases.
Under Research Tools you will find a link to our Research Guides, which are pages created by librarians to help students do research in a particular subject or class. You will also find a link to citation help and access to our RefWorks program, as well as links to our library catalog and databases.
In the Use Your Library area students can submit an InterLibrary Loan request or use the Request a Purchase option to suggest the library buy certain material.
