Getting Started: Key Resources

You can search for library materials 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.

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!
