The research process is just that: a process. A good researcher isn't someone that puts the right words in the search box the first time, it's someone who uses each search to improve the next one. By being aware that you'll circle back and perform tasks more than once, use more than one tool, and look at more resources than you actually use, you'll be better equipped to plan how long your research takes and pick the best sources.
Use this guide to get started with your research for EXSC 200! If you get stuck or have any questions, you have lots of options for getting help.
First option: Get in touch with your Science Liaison Librarian! Eli is your librarian...check out his contact information --->
You can email, call, or schedule a virtual appointment!
Option # 2 - Just drop by! There are librarians available on-call at Collins Library every weekday, typically from 9am-6pm. Check the library website to see who is available at which hours each week. It's an easy way to get quick help during the weekday.
Option # 3 is our "Ask a Librarian 24/7" service: Anytime, anywhere! This instant messaging reference service lets you chat with a librarian no matter what time it is. Puget Sound librarians can email you to follow up if you leave your email address. It's great for questions that can't wait but come up when the library is closed, citation questions, or tracking down specific books and articles. Click the button below to be connected:
