Your librarians have created subject guides to help you do research in the disciplines offered on campus, as well as other subjects related to research (such as this guide). If you are taking a class on a specific subject and are unsure where to find good resources, find the relevant guide to help you locate books, articles, websites, and more.
This popular database is a great place to start your research because of the great variety of topics and resources included. You can find scholarly journal articles, popular magazine articles, and newspapers.
Our broadest, most general index to periodicals, Academic Search Complete provides abstracts for over 9,300 scholarly and popular periodicals, and full text for more than 5,300 of these. It covers virtually all academic areas of study, including social sciences, humanities, education, computer sciences, engineering, language and linguistics, arts and literature, medical sciences, and ethnic studies.
One reason students procrastinate is because it's easy to become nervous about writing a research paper. The Writing Center can help you with all the steps of your paper. They can help you with brainstorming, drafting, revising or polishing your paper.
Rinella Learning Center can be really helpful early in the research process. They offer workshops to help you improve your study habits and to help with time management. You can also check out their tutoring services if you are struggling with the subject matter of a course.
