  • Navigating the library website for research assignments
  • Locating books, reference sources, articles, and other resources
  • Distinguishing between popular press and scholarly literature
  • Evaluating research findings
  • Citing sources

Additionally, research assistance is available at the Reference Desk or by scheduling a research appointment.
