Overview

Research is the process of discovery, and in this sense it is a creative act. It is guided by questions, shaped by evidence, and concludes with the sharing of one’s findings.

Our librarians seek to spark conversations about ideas and are here to assist in the research process, while our website provides access to myriad resources:

  • catalog containing more than 150,000 books, CDs and DVDs, and other artifacts.
  • databases and journals providing access to more than 66,000 scholarly titles and millions of peer-reviewed articles.
  • archives and special collections containing thousands of artifacts of local and national import. 

These pages also provide helpful guidance, including research and subject guides and tutorials

Similarly, we have a variety of citation tools to assist you in conforming to disciplinary standards.

For those in need of discipline-specific research assistance, the librarians also serve as subject liaisons.
