Research and Teaching

Librarians are research experts and we're here to help you with all of your research questions, wherever you are in the process. We have guides for subjects and classes, tutorials to help you get started, 24/7 chat research help to answer any questions, no matter when you're working, and librarians for every major who can give you specialized help.

Research Guides

Our research guides will direct you to the best sources for whatever you're researching. You can find guides by subject, or see if your course has a course specific guide.

Develop a Research Topic

"I don't know what to write about?!" Developing a great topic can be the hardest part of the research process. These guidelines and videos will help you navigate the uncertainty and focus your ideas into amazing research topics.
