Research Tips & Strategies

  • Start early!  It's likely you'll need to request materials from SUMMIT and via ILLiad, so you want to allow time for materials to arrive.  [Note that SUMMIT items have a check-out period of six weeks.]
  • Seek out a variety of sources:  books, essays in books, journal articles.
  • Use a variety of search tools:  Primo, multiple databases, sometimes even Google Scholar.
  • Keep track of your research with RefWorks or Zotero.  Not sure how to use these tools?  Try a library class on demand!
  • Need help at any stage of the research process?  Make an appointment with Katy!
