How do I begin my research in the library?

FAQ Categories: Research

A good place to begin is at the Information/Reference Desk. Really. Rather than leap into the catalog or databases, consult with the reference librarians about your assignment. The librarians can suggest appropriate research tools to help make your research more efficient and effective.

More information about contacting librarians: Ask a Librarian

Of course, where you begin your research depends upon what you need to know or what information you already have. It is important that you clearly understand your assignment. Depending on your topic, you may need to use a variety of books, articles, and open web sites, or maybe just one source will be enough. You can save some time by getting some advice before you start.
