When doing research for a paper, remember not all information is created equal. You’ll need to talk to your professor or check your assignment for details about how many sources and what specific types of sources are required for your paper.  Most of the time, you’ll want sources that are up to date and authoritative.  The library staff have pre-selected books, magazines, media, and websites which are current, high quality, and trustworthy. There are also subscription databases to use with have journal articles, magazine articles, and much more.   To get started, go to the library's homepage and Search all our guides in the left hand column,  Websites for specific subjects and courses are included in the guides. If you are having difficulty finding information on your topic, contact a reference librarian for assistance.
