How can this LibGuide help me?

This LibGuide contains links and lots of information and support all to help you find the resources you need for your research needs.

There are four types of resources highlighted in the tabs at the top including:

  1. Reference Materials - Includes encyclopedias, which are a great place to start for background and statistical information
  2. Books and eBooks - Breadth and depth of information
  3. Articles - Primary research and more current information
  4. Web Sites - Alternative search engines and information from government agencies and associations

Saint Jerome, Patron Saint of Libraries from CSS Friends Charter

There are also tabs for help on how to evaluate and ethically cite your sources, use the Turnitin and EndNote programs, and writing help.

So explore all the tabs and links as they are designed to help make the process of finding resources easier and hopefully more enjoyable for you. Good luck and may Saint Jerome, the patron Saint of libraries, be your guide.
