Getting Started: Key Resources

You can search for books in our library and other libraries using the links below. If you're not sure how to find what you're looking for, ask us!

Below are just a few of our multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary databases that should have articles on most subjects. For more databases, check out our Databases A-Z page and select a relevant subject from the drop-down based on your area of research.

Need to find a resource by citation? OneSearch is a great place to start! OneSearch is a way to search many of the library’s resources using a single search box. 

These resources contain basic overview information that can be useful when you're just beginning your research.

You can also search URSUS for dictionaries, encyclopedias and handbooks, many of which are accessible online!
